"I ran your IQFeed DDE vs. my broker vs. a level II window for some slow-moving options. I would see the level II quote change, then your feed update instantaneously. My broker's DDE, however, would take as much as 30 seconds to update. I am not chasing milliseconds, but half a minute is unacceptable." - Comment from Rob

When a tick error occurs, the exchanges will send a Trade Correction, and the history available via historical API lookup will be updated to reflect the correction. As of today, that tick is still in the history, so it's probably not an error.

What is it, then? The Ask Price of 500,000 is probably something I call a "token bid." Sometimes the market makers want to have an active Bid or Ask for a symbol, but don't actually want to buy or sell any of that symbol. So they set a ridiculously high ask, or a ridiculously low bid, that no one will ever try to execute. So this is probably a legit transaction. I'm not sure how this bid/ask could have resulted in a sale, but it is normal for outlandish bid/ask prices to show up on the Level 1 feed as just bid/ask offers.

I have some further information: GME experienced very volatile trading on May 12. The stock was halted 4 times during that day due to limit up/limit down restrictions. The trade you're asking about was the last trade before the first halt occurred. The bid/ask at the time of the trade, are not truly reflective of this trade. Trading resumed again 5 minutes later.

So this trade isn't exactly what I speculated, it was a unique situation. But the situation I described is common, especially in bid/ask offers that aren't also trades.
