    Can you please give a link? I can't find any.

    Here they say it is possible, only the underwriters of the IPO are not allowed to lend out shares for short sale for 30 days.

    Options will be available on LNKD in a few more days.:)
  8. You can short IPO's. it's just nearly impossible to locate a borrow.
  9. JB = "Jailed Brokers"

    but i take my little joke back now reading from the knowledgeable people that IPO can in fact be shorted.
