What was going on today? I made attempts to buy into a stock only for repeated rejections while all I could do was watch the share price go up and up. Very irritating.
That’s probably the reason, the up and up bit. Hard to fix a price
So I can only buy shares that are stable and not popular and active? That sounds as depressing as missing out in the first place. I appreciate your response though.
Was it as soon as market opened? I find that’s when most rejections have happened, in my experience. Prob as jbowen says, due to the volatility (Up & UP)
No, it was around 3-4pm. In reality I should have bought yesterday but they have been very active and volatile all week so I might have had the problem at any time. Who knows?
Hopefully just a one off
I had an issue yesterday where I repeatedly failed in a transaction but a few other things were not quite right. so I went to settings on my phone and did a force stop of the app and then tried again and it went through first time. Apart from that I have found the success rate much improved over the last few weeks

Agree. Not a great UX. I would personally like to see a more graceful error handling / message presented to the user.
