Stash Learn

Why are my trades listed as “pending?”

If you see one of your trades listed as “pending,” that means we haven’t executed the trade yet. Stash is designed for long-term investing, so we only operate four trading windows per day¹, two in the morning and two in the afternoon. Your trades will show as “pending” while they’re queued up for these windows.

While your trade is listed as “pending,” you still have the option to cancel the transaction for any reason. For instructions on how to do so, check out this page.

Once your trades have been executed, those pending transactions will instead be listed as “completed.” At this time, you won’t be able to cancel the transaction anymore.


¹Availability of trading windows is dependent on market conditions and may be subject to limitations.
