The following is a news from tradestation today. This is so great for tradestation. Tradestation now can beat any broker with this improvement. It is as good as Interactive Brokers (IB) now. I have been moving funds out of tradestation and traded much less with tradestation because of this problem since they became self clearing last year. Now I am happy with tradestation again. Another improvement for TS will be to low commission as IB did recently! I hope they will do this soon. >> TradeStation Significantly Increases List of Stocks that can be Shorted with Release of Expanded 'Easy to Borrow' List On Monday, October 24th, we launched a significant improvement to our Easy To Borrow list that greatly expands the number of stocks available to short in accounts that clear at TradeStation.
