Webull Buying Power Not Updating

Is your Webull buying power not updating?

If you’re noticing that your Webull buying power isn’t updating, there are a few potential reasons why this might be happening. 

First, it’s important to keep in mind that your buying power is based on the current market value of the securities in your account. So, if the market value of your securities has changed (due to price changes or because you’ve added or removed securities from your account), then your buying power will also change accordingly. 

Another potential reason why your buying power might not be updating is if you have open orders in your account. Buying power is typically held “in reserve” for any open orders, so if you have an open order it’s possible that only a portion of your buying power will be available to you until the order is filled or canceled.

The last reason why your buying power might not be updating is if you have pending transactions in your account. Transactions can take a few days to process, so your buying power may not reflect those transactions until they’ve completed.

Hopefully this gives you a better understanding of why your buying power might be different than what you’re expecting. If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to the Webull customer support team.
