    You have t+3 to cover.
  3. oh then it dosent affect us daytraders who go flat everyday anyway
  4. If you are short, you will toasted today.
  5. I'm at IB... and it looks like I can still short.

    That list of 799 stocks is ALL common stock...
    Apparently related non-common stocks of these companies...
    Can still be shorted assuming they are located/borrowed first.

    Can someone confirm this please?
