Consider this hypothetical situation:
Let's say that microsoft stock is currently being traded for 200 dollars and via my broker I place a buy order of one stock for 1000 dollars. I imagine there is always a seller for this price, so the stock price chart shows a very brief peak of 1000 dollars and then stabilizes again to around 200 dollars? I am pretty sure that this scenario isn't possible since you never see this in reality, but what is the missing step in my hypothetical situation that prevends this kind of behaviour from happening. Is it just illigal, or do you need to offer a buy order with way higher volume. Why do these transactions don't show up in for example a google stock chart of microsoft.
