As of 03.04.2021, whenever a pending order is placed, the funds required for its execution will be blocked from the free funds in the trading account. The blocked funds will not be available for any other orders until the pending one is executed or cancelled.
This is to prevent you from purchasing shares that are worth more than the funds available in your account, which may be one of the effects in case of extreme market conditions.
