DAmn I finally tried to short a stock yesterday for real ~~

I was going to short 100 shares of BSC yesterday at 55 a share,

but because i didnt sign up for margins they wouldnt allow me to do this transaction...

 Then I saw the stock go up to 56  57and I stopped paying attention and thought hmm.

O well.

How retarted I have 90k and 60 k in stocks yet scott trade wouldnt allow me to sell short 5,500.

without agreeing to use margin.

O well
