    Anecdotal evidence suggests my helicopter broker might have some issues of having shares of stocks available to short AND with shorts being called in prior to desired time frame.

    I'm thinking of going to IB for an acct to be able to short but would like to hear from others about issues shorting.

    If you short:
    What broker?
    Any issues with availability of shares?
    Any issues with stock being called in prior to your being ready to cover?

    Thank you,
