If your order was a stop market order, then as soon as price traded at 66.25 then your order would have triggered a "sell at market" order. So even just 1 contract traded at 66.25 would trigger that type of order.

The question you are essentially asking is this: does a quote alone trigger a stop order, or must the price be traded to trigger the order?
The answer is, it depends on the exchange. At the CME, the price must trade to trigger the order. The NASDAQ exchange, however, has the ability to trigger stop orders with a quote alone. So, it depends. And it's a shame that crooks would trigger on a quote alone, but some do. Probably lots of bucket shop forex dealers do too.
