yesterday i couldn't get shares to short XIV , from scottrade!
every time i try to short XIV/XLF after a run up, i can't get them. like yesterday. i put my order into scottrade, and zingo, no shares to short! 80-90% of the time guess what? these 2 products go down, if i try to short XIV/XLF and they have shares to short? guess what? the XIV/XLF goes up! interesting, any one with scottrade try the above , and see if its a contrarian indicator! unreal but true, jmho! g/l.
hey just, i tried to short at 17.52 near the end of the day!, yesterday! they ran it down to around 16.90 in first 1/2, today i wouldve covered. if i short, it's a trade, not a hold. i figured a!k shares with a 35-50 gain, is fine, i'm into singles and doubles, i'll leave the grand slams to guys like you!
