Hey All,

Quick question for a shorting newb, what does it mean when my broker says "Shares of this security are currently not available to short sell." I want to short NRMX, but it looks like I cant. I have always used options in the past instead of shorting the common, so ive never had this problem. I would try to use options here, but then the premiums are way high, with a implied vol of over 200% Any ideas?

Thanks a bunch,
Kyle

Charley T from RB wrote a negative comment in the last newletter and after doing some DD on my own I think this stock is going down. At least I can short it in CAPS...
