Why is the dollar amount of the order I placed different from the purchase amount?

The purchase amount of your order and corresponding weights are used to determine the number of shares to be purchased for each of the stocks/ETFs in the motif using the prevailing market prices at that time. Since security prices fluctuate, the actual purchase price for each individual security will be determined at the time the order is executed at the market.
