    • Price election will be checked between 9:30 AM and 4:00 PM ET only.
    • Price is not going to be elected if the market is crossed.
    • Only NBBO (National Best Bid and Offer) prices will be used to determine the current market.
    • All Server-side Stop orders will be canceled automatically if the market quotes are lost or if a system malfunction is detected.
