Shortable Stocks (Updates)
Recent Updates to Availability Lists
The list of shortable stocks is indicative only and is subject to change. IB does not accept short sale orders for US stocks that are not eligible for DTC continuous net settlement (CNS) and all short sale orders are subject to approval by IB.
IB customers who only execute through IB, but do not use IB as their clearing broker or custody agent ("Non-Clearing Customer"), may click here for a list of valid Market Participant Identifier (MPID) codes to be entered with their short sale orders.
Please note that we do not allow short-sale orders for less than 1 round lot (100 shares in US/Canada).
