Today I placed two trades on PTI ( Nasdaq market ).
I placed to buy 5,000 shares PTI at $ 2.37 per share
After I placed the buy order , the market came down.
I checked Nasdaq web site and shown that today's high of PTI was $ 2.36 and only traded 100 shares and then came down to $2.27.
When I checked my order status, it did surprise me.
It shown that TD Waterhouse brought 5,000 shares of PTI at $ 2.37 per shares at 9:35AM for me.
I checked Nasdaq web site .
Around 9:30AM to 9:40AM . There was not trade 5,000 shares at $ 2.37. The closest two trade were 9:33:03AM 300 shares at $ 2.35
and 9:34:21AM 100 shares at $ 2.36. The rest trade were $ 2.27 , $ 2.22 and $ 2.21
So that means they brought at lower price and sold high to me to make quick profit of $500 and more.
Is it a honest trade?
I went to TD Waterhouse ( 5991 No 3 Rd, Richmond, BC ) and talked to their receptionist. She passed my message to their headquarters
and said they will contact me within one month.
