#1 of 4 How do you determine accurate price with combo transactions?
Mar 12, 2008 (2:26 pm)
When you execute a transaction that is both a cover and a buy, or is both a sell and a short, the Estimated Share Price field seems to get wonky. How are we supposed to make heads or tails of it?

I see what you mean. I've done a couple "combo" transactions and the Estimated Price field is off -- as if you were only doing the one transaction (in my case, a cover rather than first a cover and then a buy).
Even though, in the end, the purchase went through at the right price, I couldn't tell that until I went back to my Portfolio page.
This is an interesting corner case. We'll investigate.

With some of my wacky large share transaction experiments I've seen Estimated Price field come up as zero, which certainly looks interesting. I think somehow the system is subtracting one of the share prices from the other or something.
