Stockbroker Failure to Execute Orders

When Your Broker Failed to Buy or Sell a Stock

There is a significant level of trust between an investor-client and the broker. In addition, broker and financial advisors have the duty to operate in good faith, which includes following any trading orders made by the client. When a broker fails to follow your instructions to buy or sell a specific security, you may be able to recover your financial losses resulting from the misconduct. This type of claim is typically referred to as “failure to execute.”

A failure to execute claim could include any of the following:

  • A broker refused to buy or sell a stock
  • A stop loss order was not executed
  • An investor had reason to believe an order was made, even if the broker advised against it
