The Securities Lending Dashboard lets clients evaluate short trades by accessing key securities lending metrics. Investors can access real-time metrics such as Utilization, Shares On Loan and Short Interest Indicators to gauge borrowing demand in a name, which may reflect market sentiment. They can also leverage historical data to view recent trends and compare activity across two tickers.
Our Security Lending Dashboard is powered by complimentary and premium securities lending analytics from Orbisa, a leading market data provider. Gain transparency across your portfolio, develop strategic insight, validate sentiment and add depth to your trading analysis.
Users subscribed to Premium Orbisa Securities Lending Analytics also have access to 12 months of historical data to help understand when demand is increasing or decreasing. In addition, they can gain insight by comparing borrowing demand between two stocks.
Clients interested in placing a trade can take advantage of the Securities Loan Borrow system to search the availability of shortable securities by symbol and exchange, ISIN or CUSIP, and view the quantity available, number of lenders and indicative borrow rate.
The Securities Lending Dashboard is available in IBKR Mobile, Client Portal and Trader Workstation (TWS).
