Trade Entered shows the date and exact time the trade was entered into the SMG trading system. End of Day Region transactions are priced daily at market closing prices. Real Time transactions are priced at the market price at the time of entry. Limit Price trades are not carried over to the following business day. If a Limit Price is not met, the transaction does not occur and must be reentered for the new business day.

For End of Day Trading: A stock trade must be cancelled before the close of market (4:00 p.m. EST or EDT) on the day it was entered. If the trade is entered when the market is not open, it must be cancelled before the market closes on the next day the market is open.
