How to sell stock

At Robinhood you can create a sell order by entering the number of shares or the dollar amount of the specified stock. The availability of order types depends on the available trading session and for the 24/5 Market hours on the eligibility of the stock. The default order types per trading session are as follows:

You can choose different order types if you don’t want to use the default order type. During extended hours and 24/5 market hours it isn’t possible to select sell market orders, just limit order types. Orders placed in stocks that aren’t eligible for the 24/5 market or when the market is closed, are queued for the opening of regular market hours.

When placing a market sell order, keep in mind that the last-traded price is not necessarily the price at which your market sell order will be executed.
