What is instant buying power?

Before your deposit is fully settled, we give you provisional cash as instant buying power so you can start trading right away. The maximum instant buying power we can give depends on your deposit amount, account type, cash balance, the market value of your positions, total amount of incoming funds, and your credit scores, etc. You can trade stocks and ETFs with instant buying power. However, you cannot use instant buying power to trade options or cryptocurrencies.

 

Instant buying power is a form of credit, not cash value. When you receive instant buying power, your cash balance will not increase. When you trade with instant buying power, your cash balance will turn negative because you are using the borrowed funds (credit) to trade securities. The cash balance will turn positive after the incoming funds are settled in full.

 

Instant Buying Power Delivery Time

 

If you make a deposit before 4:00 pm ET, the instant buying power is usually given the same day.

 

If you make a deposit after 4:00 pm ET, the instant buying power will be delivered at 9:00 AM the next business day.

 

To check on your incoming deposit:

 

1) Tap "More" on the home screen of the app.

 

2) Tap “Account Details.”

 

3) Scroll down to “Payable &Receivable.”

 

4) Tap "Incoming Funds.”
