Ok! Thanks for helping me out with this one. I really needed some clarification on this and now it finally makes sense.

So it looks like its more of a first come first serve situation with Limit Orders.

And if the market trades lower than the Buy Limit the order will be filled regardless of where I am in "line" or queue.

Thanks again for the clarification.

Yes, it is a case of first come first served.

If the market trades lower it simply means that all the limit orders at the level you had placed yours get scooped up (including yours obviously).
