 Some tips about selling 

If you wish to sell anything outside of market hours, this will create a sell instruction and your transaction will take place when the market opens up again. Take a read through this article here for more information on instructions and this article here for the market hours of each account. 

You can only sell a certain value and cannot select a specific number of shares to sell. 

Your sale takes place as a Market Order. This means that you cannot specify the price you would like to sell at and will receive the best price in the market at the time of your transaction. 

If during market hours you cannot sell it could be that the share is currently in an intraday or volatility auction. Check out this article here for more info.
