Question: maximum quantity to buy

Hello, I have a question.
E.g. I have 73 euro in free funds. I want to buy 1 stock which is worth 77.3 $ (71.1 euro). When I try to buy I get a message e.g. The maximum quantity you have funds to buy is 0.99. Although I have more than a stock is currently worth, I cannot buy it. Why is that?

Thank you for support

there’s a restriction in place that prevents you using more the 95% of your free funds on a single market order.

this is to avoid the order being rejected due to market price fluctuations that may suddenly mean you don’t have enough funds to purchase the shares.

I only don’t understand how they measure what % is required to remain
For some stocks it requires more for some less… I am puzzled in math behind this mechanism.

@Vedran It’s always 95%. The percentage isn’t variable.
