Why does my available cash decrease when I enter a Buy Market order?

Ustocktrade will only allow entry of a Buy order to the extent you have available cash in your account to cover the full cost of the trade.  If you enter a Buy Market order, it executes at the prevailing market price. We hold an additional 5% of your order value in case the price increases between order entry and execution. Once your trade is executed, any remaining funds will immediately go back to your available cash. If you enter a Buy Limit order, by entering a price or clicking the offer price, this price will be used to ensure you have cash available to cover the trade, without a hold.
