Question

Does a Corporate Action prevent me from placing an order?

Answer

When a Corporate Action that would have an effect on the price of a share is taking place, we will not allow new Limit, Stop or Trailing Stop orders to be placed for a short period of time.  Any orders already placed will be automatically rejected by our trading systems.
