Unable to short QQQQ?

  1. I was not able to short QQQQ this morning. Does this happen often? It is surprising to me that such a liquid ETF is not shortable.

    i am newbie in shorting....

    i have never shorted a stock.... shorting is like sell the stock u dont own?
  3. Dont short the QQQQ

    instead give the money to me (same result)
  4. You can buy PSQ or QID for double leveraged short. PSQ looks very illiquid though. I like QID better. Most shorts use QID.
  5. Not true, the first is real, the scond is a papertrade
  6. Been spot on about this market and pretty much everything else since I joined this forum in summer 06.
