A curious thing happened to my Checkfree stock today.

I placed a day order to sell 100 shares at $35 a share at about 1:30 PM CST yesterday. I thought I would lock in a few profits at a time I thought it was peaking. But, it had already begun to retreat from $35 and to my knowledge did not advance to $35 again for the rest of the day.

When I checked my account at 5:30 PM CST yesterday, there was no notice that the shares had sold.

Today at about 4:30 PM CST I had my first opportunity to check on the price of CKFR and was pleasantly surprised to see that it closed at nearly $36 a share. Then I checked my brokerage account and discovered that 100 shares of my stock had sold yesterday at $35.

I called my new broker -- Bank of America -- (they just bought out my old broker -- Quick & Reilly) and asked them to tell me the time of day when my shares sold, but, alas, they can't tell me.

Does anyone have a suggestion for a brokerage firm that can be more forthright and timely with pertinent information?
