Why does the trading system alter the amount of stocks i want to buy?


Here, I want to purchase 500 shares of APPLE, but the system keeps altering the amount to either 506.xx or 460. Why is this happening?

This has been answered a couple of days ago here. :wink:

Thanks for sharing the link.

So if I understand it correctly this is a mechanism because of the market fluctuations. But I don’t understand in how far this should protect me from a negative balance when trading 212 then goes directly all in even if it goes via the price instead of via the number of shares. Sorry but the behavior is not understandable and should be adjusted. I mean if it is negative then Trading 212 does not have to execute the trade.
