Less than expected buying power | Robinhood

Less than expected buying power

Buying power is the amount of money you can use for purchases. Unsettled funds from recent sales are temporarily unavailable in your buying power.

After the funds are settled in Robinhood, they will be added to your buying power. For more details about buying power, see Settlement and Buying Power and Crypto Buying Power.

Buying power might also change for other reasons, such as:

Your buying power is limited by what money is available for investing, such as with Instant Deposits or Robinhood Gold. To learn more about why money might be unavailable, see Why can’t I use my Instant Deposits and Why can’t I use all of my buying power to buy a security.
