Sometimes you think you have enough funds to cover your deals, but sometimes funds may be locked on other trades.

To find out if you have funds locked on other orders:

  • Go to the Smart Trades page

  • Choose the exchange and market that matches the funds you wish to check

  • Choose the "Buy/Sell" trade type

  • Look for the blue balance display and hover over it with your mouse

Here you can see a pop-up message showing if you have funds locked on other trade orders:

Any deal or Bot/Grid Bot that creates a Limit Order, will lock funds, this stops essential funds being accidentally over-allocated for other, new, trades.

DCA Bots

If you see the message:

Error placing Take Profit trade or Stop-loss: Insufficient funds


This is where the bot is trying to sell the exact amount of coins that it bought to start the trade. But, you no longer have this amount of coins on your account and price fell below entry point.

This can happen when you (1) run out of BNB to pay the trading fees (and the fee is taken from the coins bought leaving the bot with less coins than it thought it had bought), or (2) you may have accidentally traded the coins for a different coin or created a GRID Bot with them, for example, or (3) converted dust into BNB and small order size was converted also (by Binance`s rules it is amounts less than 0.001 BTC).


You can buy more of the coins that the bot is missing, so the bot can close this trade or you can cancel the trade with the red cancel button and use the Smart Sell trade type to sell the coins you have left on your account.

Error placing Base/Safety order: Insufficient funds

This is where the bot is trying to place order to buy Base token, but you are lack of Quote currency. This could happen if another trades uses same Quote currency and if Base token price rises, so you need more Quote currency to purchase same amount of Base token
