HSY is traded so heavily that you don't have to worry if you place a "market order" part way through the trading day. You'll get a 'fill' on the order within seconds.

-----------------------

I never use market ordersto buy or sell. If I want to buy something at the current price, I look at the bid/ask and place a limit order at the ask price plus or minus a few pennies. I usually get a fill within a minute (for any issue with a decent float anyway). I just don't trust market orders that can be subject to breaking news or as some would say can be manipulated in favor of the market makers. Its just makes sense to me to know the price before I buy something.
