How do i sell short?


Posted (edited)

Hi im new to IG & want to know how to short a trade.

I have tried but the sell option button is not highlighted & when i press it says "you have no existing position to close  on this market" ,i have tried many shares but always says the same.

Any help would be appreciated.

    • I think FTSE 100 is a good candidate for shorting; it's oil and banks heavy....Covid has a direct and rather drastic impact on it. US indices are tec heavy so I won't short them until mortgages default start if any ( very unfortunate though if it happens).
    • That is totally beyond me.  Perhaps it's a bad idea to short the indices (especially the American ones); perhaps it's because of the upcoming election.  I think it's just because TA is a lot of b*llocks
    • Let's go long on Wall Street and see what happens
