Yeah, I tried to pick up some of the CHK preferred last week when some poor schulb got taken out under $98. I was quite ready to pay $98, but no fill. :-(

Two days later, what I can only hope was a different poor schlub got taken in at almost $102.

WTF? Limit orders people!

Maybe I'll put a GTC at $75 and cross my fingers for a flash crash.

CHKDG is really illiquid - offering liquidity at attractive prices is a good idea.
