Unable to sell an instrument

I’m unable to sell IAG shares held since yesterday in ISA. When I select a quantity I get a ‘max short available 0 for this instrument’ (paraphrasing), as if I don’t have any shares already.


Update: I managed to get it working by buying more and it now recognises all of them.

I don’t get a sell option normally if I don’t have anything - pretty sure you can’t short from an ISA, so there was/is definitely something wrong

@team212 @George Had the same issue this morning. You might wanna look into it :slight_smile:

We will try to push the fix ASAP, most probably in a couple of hours, then Google Play needs a couple more hours to distribute the update. The app version will be


Same issue on UU. Today. Hopefully gets sorted soon.

Unable to sell

I own shares, but no sell button appears. I have tried logging out and back in. No sell button is available for any positions. Strange bug I have never encountered before. I have tried with web app on both Edge and Chrome browsers. Same thing on phone app.
It’s a good thing I was not wanting to sell today.


Are you sure that FB is not member of any pie?


You are right. How stupid of me! I forgot about that. Rookie mistake. Thanks.
