If you like Sanford then move across to NabOnline for the same everything including the same operators (Sanford). And the best part - No CommSec.

I placed an order yesterday, which was not filled immediately, on Sanford. I was watching the stock go lower, and placed a cancellation. The cancellation did not take effect, even though the buy order had not been filled.

 

Frustratingly, the order was filled at the higher price, twenty minutes after the buy order was placed. (There was a significant difference in the price by this time.)

 

I can't complain, as if things had been in the normal order of things, I would have been filled in no time at the price I asked.

 

However, I would have thought that if the price had dropped by the time they got to my order, that they would have bought it at market.

 

Anyway, I got filled , and then recieved a notice that my cancellation request had been rejected.

 

I guess days like yesterday are days when the full service broker pays their way. Ther's always going to be delays onthese days.

 

Finally, I have to say that apart from one other day when there was some mad scrambling in the market, I have been with Sanford since they started and have been very happy. Not too thrilled about the move to Commsec, but nothing to do about that. I will see how that goes.
