So, I had a very good trade yesterday and ended up losing money because I was so eager to get in the trade that the Market order overfilled my order and then undersold it.  Yes, it was my mistake.  Learned my lesson on that one. I am using TC2000 version 17 and like to day trade stocks with momentum and good volume.

My main concern is that my orders fulfill by price (give or take a few cents) rather than speed. I know that a Limit order to buy or sell will do that, but I also know that there is no guarantee it will fulfill the order. Would a Stop-Limit order be better for execution timing or a Limit order?  If I adjust my limit order to buy or sell to give or take a few cents, is that going to increase the chances of the order getting fulfilled?

thank you and I apologize if I put this in the wrong section.
