Iceberg order is a large order which has been divided into smaller orders, usually by the use of an automated program, for the purpose of hiding the actual order quantity.

A small quantity order is shown to the public as the tip of the iceberg, while a large quantity order stays hidden like the body of the iceberg.

** Kind of a trick to Buy /Sell large amount of quantities. When a very big order is visible it will affect, at least temporarily, the supply and demand of the market. To nullify such an effect, a small quantity is disclosed to the public against a large order.

Allowing this kind of play is very bad. It support misleading others.

If you see only 1000 shares available you may buy it because there is low selling pressure.

When the order is executed and after 1000 came to your account still you can see that 1000 is available for sell.  For a while you may think it is due to a delay in the program but later will realize it is another 1000 available for selling. Then if you buy that 1000 too, again another 1000 appears and so on.

This is done by entering 1000 as the 'disclosed' amount even you have placed a big number of shares for selling. (as above illustrations explained  )

Hence looking at order books , you cannot tell the real buying and selling pressure.

The following image is for an opposite, a 4000 buy order disclosed as 1000 to hide buying pressure.

What is ISON - Nov'2013?

Oh dear that is not related to stocks.


ISON is an approaching big comet towards the Sun and in this November it could create spectacular display in the sky. It is known as The Comet of the Century.
For that it has to survive strong solar wind and gravitation pull. If failed it will be broken into several parts and probably fallen in to the Sun.

---from www ---
About 10,000 years ago, Comet ISON left our solar system's distant shell, a region known as the Oort cloud, and began streaking toward the sun. This November, the icy wanderer will reach the climax of its journey, potentially providing a stunning skywatching show here on Earth.

Comet ISON was discovered just last September by two Russian amateur astronomers. Scientists have since recognized ISON as a possible "comet of the century," but to live up to its promise, it will have to survive its dangerous perihelion, or closest approach to the sun.

It is going to be one of the most dramatic cosmic spectacles in years, and NASA believes that some of the dust being ejected from its tail may end up on Earth.

On Nov. 28, 2013, Ison will fly through the sun's atmosphere little more than a million km from the stellar surface. If the comet survives--a big IF--it could emerge glowing as brightly as the Moon, briefly visible near the sun in broad daylight. The comet's dusty tail stretching into the night sky could create a worldwide sensation.


--end--

I have watched comet Kohoutek, Hyakutake, West (1976), Halley (1985), Hale Bopp ... etc. and anticipating to see the newest visitor to our solar system.

ISON like display was expected from Comet Kohoutek in 1973 , newspapers prepared full page covering for a "Daylight" comet . Scientists predicted it will be bigger than the fullmoon. Unfortunately it failed and many people could not see it with naked eye.
I saw it as a faint object through my 2.5 inch f=2 ft. telescope .

If anybody interested , I may update news on ISON time to time.

It is same here. I think that is the rule.
I can divide the total qty by 4 and place the figure.
8000 -> 2 x 4000 allowed
8000 -> 4 x 2000 allowed.
8000 -> 8 x 1000 is not allowed.

In most markets, there is nothing unethical about not disclosing exactly how many items you are willing to sell (or buy). My opinion is that Iceberg orders are completely legal and ethical.
