Can I access my money at anytime?

Monies paid into your Selftrade account via debit card can be accessed for trading immediately. BACS transfers from your nominated bank account will take 3 working days to clear into the account and can only be used for trading once cleared. Withdrawal of monies to your nominated bank account will also take 3 working days via the BACS process. But you also need to consider the trade settlement times. Sales must be settled in the market before the proceeds can be withdrawn.
