OK - so I'm probably being stupid but I've just realised that the information showing in my Portfolios has been misleading me and as this has presumably been happening for years, I'm not very happy. Whether that should be with myself or with stocko, I'm not sure. I now know that I should have been aware that stocko operates a "first in, first out" methodology…

Shorly after the end of trading each day there's a UT trade that goes through the market. From what I understand this is a kind of balancing trade and mops up unfilled buy and sell orders with a sort of auction process.
