Frequently asked questions

Can I cancel an order?

The ability to cancel an order is dependent on your account type. You are able to cancel any pending orders on an Instant GIA. However, once an order has been completed, then you are unable to cancel or make any amendments to the order.

With a Standard GIA, ISA or JISA, all orders are submitted in bulk to complete in our trade window so once an order has been created, it cannot be cancelled.

Why did Wombat ask for a photo ID during the sign-up process?

To fully comply with UK, EU and global regulations, Wombat may require photo ID to enable us to verify the identity of all users.

What are the market hours for trading with Wombat?

Instant GIA

The shares available for our Instant GIA are traded on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) which is open Monday-Friday (excluding US bank holidays) 9:30 am to 4:00 pm New York (NY)/Eastern Time (ET). This is usually 14:30 - 21:00 UK time but is subject to change according to daylight savings time.

View holidays and trading hours for the NYSE here.

If you place your trade outside of market hours, you can expect your pending trades to complete when the NYSE next opens.

Standard Accounts

The majority of shares available for our Standard accounts are traded on the UK market, however, a selection of US stocks are available too. We trade once a day (this allows us to keep your account fees low) shortly after 15:00 each business day (excluding bank holidays). Trades on this account will complete shortly after 15:00 (if placed before the market opens, any trades placed after this will complete on the next working day).
