If any of you sell, please post so we can all get an idea on what price the market will support.


The price obtained by a small seller will depend on the lot-size being sold and the time of day/day of week it is offered out. Less than marketable lots will be low-balled, if they get any bids at all. Time of day does matter, but I haven't yet discovered the optional time. I just know, from watching prices a lot, that prices do vary throughout the day, and, probably throughout the week, depending on the rhythms of the underling desks.

E.g., if your solicitation of bids is put out during their lunch hour, how much attention will it get? As for trying to get a fair bid on a Friday afternoon, forget about it. Do you really think they'll bid to buy and then carry the position over the weekend?
