    I can't short any stocks with IB this morning. Anyone else having this issue?

    yes, in chat with them now.
    will opst followup
  3. Yeah, everything's tagged as "hard to borrow" (dark green) It's either a system glitch or they're anticipating a blood bath today.
  4. I just want to post publically that there were three complaints on this thread, claiming it doesn't belong in the trading section.

    This type of thread is a perfect example of what belongs in the trading section. Stop hitting the complain button.

    If it turns out resolved, then fine, it will go to chit chat.
