My 15 Minutes Of Fame

Today, January 14th 2021, I have received an email notifying me that a limit order I placed some weeks ago has partially filled. I have sold some employee Uber stock options at $60.03. I have made some money! Hurray!

Only 70% of the order was filled. The price has since slipped and did not recover by the time the market is closed. I have never had a limit order partially filled before, given my trade is a small fry in the big market. $60.03 was the day's high. Actually, it was the 52 week high. In fact, it was the historical high since the IPO nearly two years ago.

Yes, I have entered the sale price myself, sixty dollars, AND three cents. If market orders are arranged in a queue, my order would be the last in the queue. This seems unusual since Uber is a major company that trades in high volume. Is it possible that my order is the only order at $60.03? I don't know enough to say if this thinking is correct or not. But if it is true, then I hold the record of the highest sales price out of the entire world!

This is clearly just a random move. It does not mean I have any brilliance in stock trading. I have sold far more shares at bargain basement prices when Uber was deep in the COVID-19 slump that I did today. Or perhaps the stock will double again in a year, then I will punch myself for dumping them for only $60.

But for now, I held the record of trading Uber stock at the highest price of all time!
