Hi guys, I was hoping someone could tell me if I am right or wrong in this situation. I am still a little pissed off about what happen. Earlier this morning I log into E-trade and had plan on shorting TIVO. I set aside $7,000 cash for this and $14,000 in margin able securities. The system did not allow me to short at 900, 700, 600, 500 shares saying each time that I had insufficient funds. I was able to finally short 450 shares. Which came out to become $5200 Market Price. I called in immediately and was "helped" by a clueless employee. I was trying to get the rest of my order filled at the market price that I had put into the computer. I had them put a trade inquiry in for the maximum number of shares I would have been able to short. I just got a call back from them saying there "system" executed the correct order because it was not able to initiate the trades at the market price due to the price drop but had basing it off the prior price before TIVO dropped 30+ %. I call bullshit on this, and it seems like they do not want to cover the losses due to the additional drop the stock took. Am I wrong and that much of a noob?
