Cancel a pending order | Robinhood

Cancel a pending order

After placing an order, you might have the option to cancel it before it’s executed within the app.

Keep in mind

You can only cancel pending orders. You can’t reverse an order that’s been executed in the market.

To cancel a pending order in the app:

  1. Select Account (person icon) → Menu (3 bars) or Settings (gear)
  2. Select History
  3. Under Pending, select the order to cancel
  4. Select Cancel Order
Note

Even if you try to cancel a regular-hours order (good-til-cancelled or good-for-day) for a NASDAQ-listed stock between 9:25 AM ET and 9:30 AM ET, we’ll keep the order open in the pending state until the opening cross for the stock. The opening cross usually happens at 9:30 AM ET. This is a NASDAQ rule that we can’t change, so be sure to cancel your pending order before 9:25 AM ET to avoid an execution.

Keep in mind

Our app will show you the equivalent Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) or British Summer Time (BST) that matches up with the US Eastern times for trading hours. For example, 9:30 AM ET is 5 hours behind GMT and 4 hours behind BST, so will either be 2:30 PM GMT or 1:30 PM BST.

Cancel a pending fractional order

You can cancel a pending fractional order the same way as you would cancel a pending whole-share order. However, the following are a few times when you can’t cancel a pending fractional order:

  • During a trading halt: If a security or the market overall is experiencing a trading halt, you may have the option to cancel pending fractional orders, but the cancel requests won’t be processed until the halt is lifted. These halts aren’t Robinhood’s decision and the timing of them is beyond our control.
Note

If you place a fractional order and it’s routed to a market maker but a trading halt goes into effect before the order executes, you can’t cancel it. The order will execute when the halt is lifted.

  • Between 9:20 and 9:30 AM ET: If you place a fractional order outside of market hours and you want to cancel it prior to market open, you must do it before 9:20 AM ET. You can’t cancel fractional orders between 9:20 and 9:30 AM ET because it’s too close to the market open.
