Fidelity will continue to communicate the status of any open trades via the Orders page of your portfolio.
In order to address extraordinary market volatility in individual securities, the securities markets have also implemented a Limit Up-Limit Down mechanism that will prevent trades in certain stocks from occurring outside of specified price bands.
Trades for individual exchange-listed or National Market System NMS stocks will be prohibited from occurring at a set percentage higher or lower than the average security price in the preceding five minutes during certain market hours.

Therefore, the purchase takes place on the next business day following the sale. On the sale of your mutual funds, you will receive the next available price, and on the purchase of your mutual funds, you will receive the next business day's price.
Fidelity has long discouraged excessive trading by mutual fund investors. Excessive trading can be expensive and burdensome for long-term shareholders.
Read the full policy. This depends on what type of security you are trading. See the Mutual Funds section above for information about mutual fund pricing. For many equities and options, the most recent price might be from seconds ago, though it could be minutes, hours or even days, for less liquid securities. Instead of relying on the most recent, last trading price, a better indication is the bid price and ask price. The ask price is often referred to as the offer price. It is updated continuously during market hours.
Along with the bid price and ask price, there is also an indication of size, representing how many shares are willing to be bought bid size and sold ask size at those prices. For equities, the size indicated should be multiplied by A bid size of 5 actually represents shares willing to be purchased at the bid price.
If you are placing a market order hoping to receive the next available price , the NBBO is an indication of the price you could receive.
For buy orders, the best offer price is the best indication of the price at which an order is likely to be filled. The best bid price is the best indication of the price at which a sell order will be filled. However, if the size of your buy order is larger than the size available at the ask, you should expect that some of your order might execute at a price higher than the ask. In addition, there are various market conditions that can cause orders to be executed at better or worse prices than the bid and ask.
While the bid and ask price are displayed to investors and other market participants, there can also be non-displayed orders at, inside, or outside of the bid and ask prices. There is the potential that your order will execute against a non-displayed order that is resting between the bid and ask, which could improve your execution price. Also, in fast market conditions, there could be orders ahead of yours that deplete all available shares at the bid or ask, moving prices in or out of your favor by the time you place your trade.
News events, market volatility, market outages, and other circumstances can all impact the execution price that you receive. You should always use caution with market orders as securities prices can change sharply. Price improvement occurs when a market center is able to execute a trade at a price lower than the ask for buy orders or higher than the bid for sell orders. It is associated with trades that are immediately marketable limit orders that can immediately execute based on current market prices, as well as market orders.
In addition to measuring execution speed and the likelihood of your order being filled in its entirety, we strive to send orders to venues that are most likely to be able to price improve orders. Equity, single-leg option, and multi-leg option trades can receive price improvement. Equity and single leg option orders that are executed while the market is open will display an estimate of the total dollar value of price improvement that you received, if any, based on the bid ask at the time your order was submitted.
If your order is not immediately marketable, for instance if you place a limit or stop order away from the current bid ask, the price improvement indication will not be displayed. This is because as seconds or minutes pass, market conditions change, and your execution price is more a reflection of those changing conditions than it is of true price improvement. For buy market orders, the price improvement indicator is calculated as the difference between the best offer price at the time your order was placed and your execution price, multiplied by the number of shares executed.
Due to the time difference between when your order is placed versus when it is executed, the best offer price may be different at each of these times. This price improvement calculation should be considered informational and is not used for regulatory reporting purposes. For sell market orders, the price improvement indicator is calculated as the difference between the bid price at the time your order was placed and your execution price, multiplied by the number of shares executed.
As noted above, the bid price at the time of order entry may be different from the bid price at the time of order execution; therefore, the price improvement indication may differ from the actual price improvement that your order may receive. Effective December 6, , the calculation for price improvement on limit orders will reflect not only the quoted bid or ask price at the time your order is submitted, but also the limit price that you use.
Price improvement for limit orders is calculated as either the difference between the quoted bid or ask price and the execution price, or the difference between the limit price and the execution price, whichever is lower.
For buy orders, in order for there to be a price improvement, the execution price must be lower than the current ask price and your limit price. Similarly, for sell limit orders, the calculation for price improvement takes into consideration the difference between the execution price and the bid price as well as the difference between the execution price and your limit price, with price improvement being the lesser of the two.
In order to help ensure that order execution is the top priority, the quoted bid ask is captured separately from the trade execution process. In rare instances, the quote may not be captured for the price improvement indication calculation by the time the order is executed.
When this happens, the price improvement indication will not be calculated on your order. Depending on the price per share and the liquidity of the security, price improvements can be bigger or smaller than the examples provided. For stock and option orders with wide bid-ask spreads, there is a wider range of prices at which your order could execute inside of the spread. With more room between the bid price and ask price, there is the potential, though not a guarantee, that the execution price will be more significantly below the ask or above the bid than for products with tighter bid-ask spreads.
In such cases, the price improvement indicator may appear larger than usual. Market conditions are a large contributing factor to the amount of the price improvement indication in these instances.
Fidelity works to ensure that orders receive the best possible execution price by routing orders to a number of competing market centers. This is done by supervising order-flow routing activities, monitoring execution quality, and taking corrective action when venues aren't able to meet our quality standards.
To learn more, see our Commitment to Execution Quality. This increment is known as the "tick size. The pilot will consist of a control group and three test groups, with each test group having approximately securities. Securities will be added to test groups in phases, between October 3 rd , and October 31 st , Other order types, such as trailing stop and conditional orders, in test group 1, 2, or 3 will be canceled prior to Market Open on the date that the security begins trading.
The SEC's stated goal is to "assess … whether wider minimum tick sizes for small capitalization stocks would enhance market quality to the benefit of market participants, issuers and U. Also, they expressed a hope that the industry will use this data to assess the effect of tick size on liquidity, execution quality, volatility, market maker profitability, competition, transparency, and institutional ownership.
The Tick Size Pilot is not a Fidelity program. It is an industry-wide pilot for a group of publicly traded securities, mandated by the Securities and Exchange Commission. In general, securities will not move in and out of test groups. However, a corporate action in a specific security could result in that security moving from one test group to another.
Test group securities will be removed from the pilot if they delist from a national securities exchange or if they merge with or become acquired by a company not currently in the pilot. Equity markets generally operate under a "trade through" rule. Competing market centers are prohibited from executing at a price inferior to the best quote displayed in the market, but they may match that price.
