Yesterday, I tried to short a company. But IB rejected my order saying, "Shares couldn't be borrowed". Normally when that's the case, the ticker will be flagged. But the ticker I tried to sell wasn't. This morning, however, there was a bulletin on my trading platform, as well as an email, saying "Shares are now available to borrow."The online complaints about IB are endless, typically as regards to "customer service". But they've always done me right, and I got short as I wanted. Now, 2-1/2 hours into the session, I'm up by 12.6%. Not quite as good as if I had been able to execute yesterday, but still decent enough.
