Why didn't I get filled?

A limit is an order to buy at a specific price or better. I am assuming you know this, if you are trading with skin in the game, and are probably aware of the different order types. If not I highly reccomend a visit to Inestopedia: http://www.investopedia.com/university/intro-to-order-types/I would think that for a sure entry or exit you would need to use a "market order" or a "market if touched" order type. While MIT does not insure an excact fill price it does insure a fill but with a chance for slippage.

I am a begginer also, so maybe someone with a bit more experience will enlighten you further.
Good Luck!
