Why didn't my trade execute immediately?

All of the data displayed on our platform is in real time. Therefore, if a trade is not executing immediately it's likely because the markets are closed. 

If you make a trade while the markets are closed, it will execute when the markets next open. 

However, there are other potential causes of why a trade did not go through. If for example, you try to sell more stocks than you currently hold an error message will appear.
