    I have seen IPIX falling on friday the whole day and I was not able to borrow it at IB for the whole day.

    Where does all the additional volume come from? Probably from shorting, right?

    So how is it possible, that IB doesn't have them available? I would really like to have official answer from IB person at ET.

    On the other hand, which brokers did have IPIX available for shorting on friday?

    Please help, fellow traders.

    help you with what? borrow stock or official answer? first of all you should check IB short list-


    second-check, stocks which is restricted for short by 11830 rule-

    if IB page is not enough, here is the link on nasdaq-

    on same website you will find info about 11830 rule.
    hope this helps you understand, that ability to short is not always depend on your broker's mood or inventory :D

    Bob, IPIX shouldn't have UPC restrictions, right. So in a falling day, where all the volume came from?

    all we know for now, that this stock is not available for short for retailers, like you and me ,on friday,when you want to short it:) . welcome to my world, happens all the time...




    Secretary Tom Ridge Speaks at the Tennessee Valley Corridor Technology Summit

    Knoxville, Tenn.
    Tennessee Valley Corridor Technology Summit

    ....And our Department is relying on the Tennessee Valley Corridor – and the entire research and development community – to bring the latest technologies to market and to develop an enduring national research capability in homeland protection.

    Already, you have proven yourselves up to the task. The Oak Ridge National Laboratory is one of the premier places for radiological and nuclear research and development.

    They are designing ultra-sensitive detectors that provide important information to first responders about necessary response measures and medical treatments.

    ORNL is an important player – along with local companies such as iPIX, ORTEC, NucSafe, REMOTEC, and AquaSentinel – in our effort to build a vast R&D infrastructure to protect the homeland.
  7. In case you haven't figured it out, the trading in IPIX is rigged. Some volume Friday can come from bag holding bottom fishers getting stopped out, not just sellers from Thursday.

    IPIX is a plaything of the MM's and the boys in the sub basement running the flow.
