Last Friday I placed a limit order to buy FB.
After the market closed, I logged on and saw a notice saying my order had expired unexecuted.
Yesterday (Thursday) I got an email from Scottrade with the subject, "Trade Confirmations Available Online."
At first I thought it was a phishing attempt, since I hadn't placed any trades since last Friday, and that one expired without being executed.
I just got off the phone with Scottrade, and they're now claiming that they didn't receive confirmation of the trade (from Nasdaq) until Wednesday.
Do I have any legal recourse against Scottrade or Nasdaq?
I can't help but wonder what would have happened if I'd spent that cash on another stock, or withdrawn it from my account.
