Can prices change over a weekend or holiday?
If an extreme world event happens over the weekend, there may be a significant difference in the price of a market when it closed on Friday and when it will open on Sunday. This is called gapping and it means that there are no tradable prices between the closing price on Friday and the opening price on Sunday. All orders which are triggered by the jump in price will be filled at the opening rate at the beginning of the week. This could have significant negative implications on the execution of your order.
