RoboMarkets informs its clients of Walmart’s stock split

Retail FX and CFD broker RoboMarkets has informed its clients of Walmart’s stock split.

On 26 February 2024, Walmart will have its stocks go through a split. A stock split is a corporate action, as a result of which the company increases the number of issued shares by a specific multiplier and reduces the value of each share by the same multiplier.

Walmart will conduct a 3-for-1 stock split (1 share will be split into 3).

If you have open positions in Walmart shares or plan to open such positions, please pay attention to the following changes, which will be effective as of 26 February 2024:

  • MetaTrader 4 / MetaTrader 5 accounts

The split procedure will take place on 26 February and will be completed prior to the US Stock session’s start at 16:30 hours (server time).

All pending orders (Buy Limit, Buy Stop, Sell Limit, Sell Stop, Buy Stop Limit, Sell Stop Limit, Stop Loss, and Take Profit) in WMT will be cancelled.

For positions in WMT, the opening price will be divided by 3.

The volume of each open position in WMT will be multiplied by 3.

Please note that if you are using an Expert Advisor (EA), RoboMarkets suggests that you check with its developers whether its code needs any modifications to ensure the correct interpretation of the price data after the stock split.

The split procedure will take place on 26 February and will be completed prior to the US Stock session’s start at 16:30 hours (server time).

During the split procedure, all active pending orders (Buy Limit, Sell Limit, Stop Loss, and Take Profit) in WMT, and WMT.ny will be cancelled.
