The platform won’t allow me to conduct a trade stating “Currently, a trade with this volume cannot be executed”. What’s the problem?

In comparison to cryptocurrency markets, financial markets are considerably more regulated and rigid. Therefore, Bitpanda has got several risk layers in place to guarantee smooth operations both during on- and off-exchange hours.

However, it is still possible that we may encounter issues preventing systems from operating smoothly. Some of these reasons could be interrupted flows of information, extraordinary market instabilities, internal risk considerations or errors originating from one of our partner firms.

Usually, interruptions like these should be rectified promptly. However, please keep in mind that trading during off-exchange hours can potentially be limited to certain volumes due to internal risk considerations.

Keep in mind

Bitpanda Stocks enables you to make fractional investments. To allow for this, Bitpanda issues a derivative contract which is backed by the underlying stock or ETF. You can read more about this here.
