    • Raff1989: sorry Casper1984 :( what brokerage do you use? I know that with TD you can. You may have to have a minimum amount of funds in your account.

    • Xvansan: Sorry about your loss Casper. The key in trading is to learn from your mistakes. Typically, you can sell a stock with uncleared funds...

    • Xvansan: as long as you make a corresponding deposit into your brokerage account before doing so. I recommend not buying stock with uncleared funds

    • Xvansan: unless you can increase your brokerage balance by the same amount, or plan on holding 3-4 days until the transaction is processed.

    • CASPER1984: Yes, if i had made a deposit, i could have sold, but didnt have spare funds in that amount. You are correct about learning from the mistakes

    • CASPER1984: Mistakes have proven to be quite an effective teacher, almost more than my successful trades have been. I guess the mistakes hurt, haha.
