I do not know about the broker you are using but it sounds like you are buying at market price, the best price available at the time your order is reached in the line-up and processed. When doing online purchases there should be an option called limit order or something like that. By this option you can set the maximum price you will pay for your order. The downside is that if the price exceeds our limit your order will not be filled.
