How do I sell an investment?

Selling investments is easy and painless. Plus you can do it right from the app! When selling, you have the option to sell a specific dollar amount or the entire investment. Please note that there’s a mandatory 2-business-day holding period after the sale before your funds will be available to use.

To sell investments in the app:

  • From the Home screen, tap Invest on the navigation bar.
  • Select the investment you’d like to sell.
  • Tap the Buy/Sell button, then tap Sell.
  • Choose the reason(s) you’re selling, then press Continue.
  • Enter the amount you’d like to sell, then press Continue.
  • Make sure your information is correct on the Confirm sale page, then read the disclaimer and check the box. Tap the orange Sell button to confirm the sale.

You’re all set! After the holding period of 2 business days is over, you’ll be able to use your funds. Keep in mind that a business day is Monday through Friday, excluding weekends and US market holidays.
