What's this mean? I wanted to start a short position today but it's not letting trade in the free market?
Anybody else restricted?
If you're unable to or don't want to short IWM (or buy IWM puts), you can buy RWM (ProShares Short Russell 2000). RWM isn't quite as liquid as IWM, but still has decent volume.
Options press will not allow shorting of Iwm in fact they closed my short I had on since January. Options xpress is owned by Charles schwab.
Still not available to short at TDAmeritrade. Price up today where I'd want to short, but it won't let me. #$%$, this is BS.
