GM Currently Hard to Borrow ?

  1. Hey All,

    I was doing some research today between options prices, stock prices and single stock future prices.

    I noticed that GM had some peculiarites in its data.

    The vol skew on the options had the puts trading at a much higer implied vol than the calls.

    I also noticed a huge bid ask spread on OneChicago (27.82-31.68).

    I was wondering if GM was hard to borrow right now. I dont know a way to find that information out, but its the only thing I could think of that could explain what I'm seeing.

    Also, if there is a way to find that infomation out on my own, I would appreciate it if someone pointed me in the right direction.

    Thanks !

    Yes. It has been for some weeks now. I recently paid $0.09/share for a borrow!
