stock ahead

(redirected from Stocks Ahead)

Stock ahead

When two or more orders for a stock at a certain price arrive about the same time, and the exchange's priority rules take effect. NYSE rules stipulate that the bid made first should be executed first, or, if two bids come in at once, the bid for the larger number of shares receives priority. The bid that is not executed is then turned to the broker, who informs the customer that the trade was not completed because there was "stock ahead.".

Stock Ahead

Informal; a situation where an order is not executed because another order takes precedence over it. For example, when two orders are placed, and the first order is made at a better price, the second order is not executed because there was "stock ahead."

stock ahead

Used to describe limit orders that have been placed earlier and that take precedence over subsequent orders at the same price. An investor may find that a limit order has not been executed even though the specified price has been reached because orders with the same limit have been placed earlier than his or hers. Limit orders at a specific price are executed in the sequence in which they are received.
