Why Can’t I Sell My Stock On Robinhood?


You might not have noticed the buy or sell button on the detail page for a stock for the following reasons:

  • We oppose foreign stocks, which this is. Visit Assets Available on Robinhood for criteria on acceptable equities. You will be able to sell a stock you possess in the market if it delists, but you won’t be able to buy more shares.
  • It is an OTC stock or a warrant, which Robinhood typically does not support.
  • A corporate action is being taken on the stock. As soon as the corporate action is complete, the shares will once again be traded.
  • For a number of reasons, stocks may not be searched or may be marked as untradable.
  • Trading has stopped on the exchange.

Another reason you are unable to buy or sell a stock can be that the stock does not trade in the market after being delisted from the major exchanges. The reasons can be:

  • A corporate action is being carried out on security.
  • It’s a foreign security, which we don’t support.

Error “Not enough shares”

  • If you have an active, pending order for the shares of stock you wish to sell, you might get this notification. Before you can sell the shares, you must cancel any pending orders.

To see the orders you have pending in your mobile app:

  • On your home screen, tap the Account symbol in the lower right corner.
  • Click History.
  • The top of the screen displays a list of all of your outstanding orders. To revoke a placed order through your mobile app:
  • From the list of pending orders, tap the desired order.
  • At the bottom of your screen, tap Cancel Order.

Try the steps below to fix your app if it’s running slowly or not as it should be:

  • Check the strength of your WiFi signal. Try turning it off and using your cellular data instead if it’s weak.
  • Verify that you are using the most recent Robinhood app version. If not, kindly click here to download the most recent iOS app or here to download the most recent Android app.
  • Force the Robinhood app to close.
  • Lock the Robinhood app and then unlock it again.
  • Make sure no other apps are operating in the background by turning on and off your phone.
  • Install the Robinhood app once again.
