How do I sell investments?

From your account portfolio, select 'Sell' or from your account dashboard select 'Deal' in the account you wish to trade. This will display the 'Find Investment' search field, where you can input the ISIN/Symbol/Name of a security and locate. On the 'Create Order' screen, confirm your holdings, order type and the amount you wish to sell and select 'Get a Quote'. This will generate the quote screen which will display for 15 seconds. Review the detail of the trade and confirm if you are happy to go ahead, or cancel.
