I'm new to this forum and sort of new to stocks trading as well. I recently placed a order on my stockbroker's website to buy some shares.6 days ago I received a confirmation email saying that the order has been executed and those recently purchased shares do show up on my portfolio. However, on my accounts page I have an amount as "unsettled stock order" which is equal to the amount I used to buy those shares. I understand that it does take a few day(typically 3 days) for a purchase order to settle and in this case, for whatever reason, it seems to have taken longer.
My question is: can I sell those stock during these days, before the order is settled?
