Cancellation of pending split orders works the same as full stock orders. However, you may not be able to cancel them in the following cases:

  • During Trading Stops: Trading in certain securities may stop for a variety of reasons. If your stock or the entire market is facing a stop, you will be able to cancel a pending split order, but the request will not be granted until the stop is lifted. Shutdowns are out of Robinhood’s control and are not influenced by developer decisions.
  • Between 9:20 am and 9:30 am Eastern Time: If you place your split order outside of business hours, you will need to cancel it before the market opens. It is not possible to reverse a split order between 9:20 am and 9:30 am because it is too close to the market open.
  • Placing split orders that are redirected to market makers: If your split order is redirected to a market maker and trading is stopped before the order is executed, you will not be allowed to cancel the order. He would be executed when the halt was lifted.

What to do if you can’t cancel an order

There have been several complaints that users cannot cancel orders. If you clicked the “Cancel Order” button above and nothing happened, there are a few things to try.

First, if you are using the Robinhood mobile app, go to a web browser. The main complaint from users is that the app is sometimes uncooperative.

Next, consider how busy Robinhood is right now. Sometimes all it takes is a minute or two to wait and the order will cancel itself.

Finally, it could be a known issue. Check the robinhood website for any fault.

A regular settlement is another term for a settlement period and refers to your trade date + two trading days. The funds will become part of your purchasing power on the third day and will appear as cash that you can withdraw.

Withdraw to another bank account: For 60 days after your deposit, you may need to verify more information if you’re not transferring your money to the same account you used to deposit it at origin.

If the original account has been closed or you cannot access it, you can consult the Robinhood support team. However, you may need to share the following details:

o A brief description of why you cannot transfer funds to the account you originally deposited them from.
