I’ve recently moved to Trading 212 and have a question. It would be amazing if someone could enlighten me? I’ll use Oil for an example.
When I go to open a trade and click the “market” tab, it’ll ask me to put in a quantity. It displays beneath the quantity how much it’s going to take out of my wallet, which is great.
When I click the “limit/stop” tab to open a trade at a specific price (want to buy a dip), it asks me to put in a quantity, but doesn’t tell me how much it’s going to take out of my wallet. If I do something like 500 quantity, it’ll say “The maximum quantity you have funds to buy is ‘x’”. So it clearly knows how much it’s going to cost vs how much is in my wallet. Why should I have to do a calculation before doing a limit/stop trade, unless I’m being ignorant and missing something?
