At-the-Opening Order


Sort of a door crasher for securities. If you give your broker an at-the-opening order, they are expected to get their behind into the market and buy on your behalf as soon as the market opens.

If the lineup at Starbucks is extra-long that morning and they can't buy right at the opening of the market, they cancel the order.
