Pavalos asked..

"What happens when the limit order doesn't go through? Do you still have to pay a commission, or is it like it never happened?"

No commision unless a trade is made. Some discount brokers charge more for a limit order and many of them do not allow GTC (Good 'til Cancelled).. most are limiting them to GTC or GF60 (Good for 60 days) which ever occurs first.
