Order Issue


I went short EURNZD at 1.4045 around 23:00 17/4/2015 (UTC+8) and set a BUY LIMIT order at 1.4028 for profit target. However, my order wasn't filled even when the two candlesticks I shown in attachment crossed over my BUY LIMIT order level. It was not ONCE, but TWICE, and yet my order wasn't filled in the end.

Candlestick 1
Time: 00:00
Price: 1.4036
Open: 1.4038
High: 1.4038
Low: 1.4026
Close: 1.4032

Candlestick 2
Time: 00:30
Price: 1.4036
Open: 1.4032
High: 1.4041
Low: 1.4027
Close: 1.4039

As shown above and in the attachment, the price hit 1.4026 and 1.4027 which were lower than my BUY limit order and yet my order wasn't filled at all.

Would it be possible that my order couldn't get filled? Why didn't I get filled?

Sorry for the immature question. Newbie here!
