I was looking at a Vanguard ETF after the market had closed. The ETF usually trades in the 80 dollar range. I was looking to put in a market order for some shares that would execute the next morning since I wasn’t too concerned about the exact price. I got to the order screen and saw the estimated cost of my shares was being calculated on an ask price of around 175 dollars, so I quickly cancelled that.
My question is would my trade likely have actually executed at that price in the morning?
More generally, what if that ask price were some ridiculous amount, say 10,000 dollars?
