well, let me clarify a bit. if you look at short interest, i am sure there is some (i have not looked). so, there are some shorts in this stock. BUT, i have tried to recently short, especially with this big up day, and my scottrade, and e-trade both show there are NO shares available to be shorted. I called my broker at scottrade, and he confirmed. I cant understand that, bec ause NOT everyone that owns this POS has called their broker and told them "please dont allow my shares to be borrowed for short selling". something is wrong here, with no shares being available to short. with all the shares being traded today, all those that have been bought, have not been with the instruction "do not lend for short selling". Come on, not even one share is available. So, there are no shorts in my opinion, being added to this.
YOU ARE AN IDIOT!!!!!!!
You cannot prevent broker from loaning out your shares to short!
Get a clue!
I Just shorted 1000 shares @ Ameritrade. No problem.
Amazing how clueless some people are about the basic rules of trading, yet they put their money at risk.
Hope he will get a clue soon about how brokers loan out shares to short and get double commission an same shares. Only way to stop broker from loaning out shares is having a cash only account. No margin. That's about 1% of people.
