How to sell an investment when the markets are closed on the EasyEquities widget

A Sell Instruction can be created when a trade is placed outside of market hours or during an intra-day auction. Your sell instruction will be converted into a sell trade when the market opens on the next trading day or once the intra-day auction has ended.

Here is a step-by-step guide on how to set up a Sell Instruction on your EasyEquities widget:

  • Tap on Invest 
  • Search and select the investment you want to sell to view the details of it 
  • Tap Sell
  • Enter the amount you wish to sell and tap Next 
  • Confirm the sell instruction by tapping on the presented dialogue 
  • Tap Confirm  
  • Tap Done


Here are the steps you would need to take should you wish to cancel a sell instruction while it is still in a pending state: 

  • Tap the Menu Icon on the top right of the screen 
  • Tap Pending Instructions to view a list of pending instructions 
  • To cancel a sell instruction, select an instruction 
  • Tap Cancel 
  • Confirm the cancellation on the presented dialog 
  • Tap Done
