round lots, less than 100 shares, and chart prices
I recently had a stop loss order for $80 on a trade of less than 100 shares. I was stopped out at a price of $79.25. The low that day on stockcharts.com charts was $79.50. I called my broker (Fidelity) for an explanation and was told that the high-low prices one sees on a chart are only for round lots ( 100 shares or more). Is this correct? If so, how do you avoid getting a lower price when you have a stop loss order in for less than 100 shares on a trade.
