    I would like to some short penny stocks.

    But my etrade and optionsxpress account could not borrow the stock in order for me to do it.

    As far as I know, IB and TOS are able to do it, am I right?

    The next question is if anyone can advise is there is any discount broker able to do that too?

  2. Hi! I'm in the same situation. None of where I go they just won,t trade OTC'S online, I have to keep calling the broker but I'm loosing precious time as I am daytrading. Here's the catch; I live in Canada so it's getting diffucult finding one. Does anyone havean idea of just where I could find such a plateform??? Thanks a lot!

    P.S. Been searching for about a month now, with no luck :(

    IB allows you to short pennies (in Canada too).
