Why are some stocks suddenly unavailable to trade?

Most U.S. listed equities, options, ADRs and ETFs are supported for trading on Webull Platforms. However, bonds, mutual funds, pink sheets and penny stocks on the OTC markets are not supported. 

However, if one stock is going through a corporate action, the affected stock will be temporarily unavailable for trading while the changes are being processed by our clearing firm. A corporate action may even temporarily remove your position from a stock until the event is complete. If you still don’t see your position after the corporate action is complete, please contact us through Live Help.

The following corporate actions will affect trading in stocks:

Additionally, due to the share price volatility, some stocks may turn into penny stocks. Due to the inherent risks of penny stocks, these stocks are not tradable on Webull. If you would like to close your existing positions on these stocks, please contact us through Help Center.

If the stock is not going through a corporate action, then please contact us through Live Help, and we will have a representative with you shortly.
