I don't think you did anything wrong. I think it was just the bid/ask circumstance of this particular trade. I recently became the Ticker Guide for JFrog and opened a position, as is my custom. When the trade confirmations came in, I had all but half a share in one trade, and the final half in another. But I ended up with all the shares I wanted.

As for being on hold, just about every company around is suffering from staffing shortages, which leaves those in call centers handling larger volumes with fewer resources. I was just dealing this month trying to cancel an website hosting service. They wouldn't do it online, they wouldn't do it by phone, they would only do it by email. And even now, I'm not sure if they processed a refund for charging me AFTER I requested the cancellation.

I've just resolved to be as patient as I can. Help goes better with honey than vinegar.

Who is not bothered by factional shares and hasn't paid trade commissions in years...
