Street Smart Direct Access Shorting

  1. Hey,

    So I'm one of people who stuck with Cybertrader after they changed into Schwab. One of my biggest gripes had been the removal of direct access shorting.

    Anyways, I got a message the day before Christmas on my laptop in my message center that it was now available, with link, went and downloaded it, and the option was there to route shorts via direct access instead of Smartex. I didn't actually short anything.

    Now, I'm back on my desktop, noticed no message in my message center, but went online to download the latest version of Streetsmart expecting to have that feature - and it's not there.

    Had a chat with a service rep that it WAS out, but the release was postponed due to "timing".

    Was wondering if any of you had this experience.
