Autotrading on IB paper account shows all stocks not shortable
« on: January 21, 2023, 01:01:40 am »
My live account is also opened and I tried to short a stock there and it didn't object to the order.  However that stock, and all others, say they are not shortable in the Autotrader.  Can anyone please help me explain why.  Thanks.
