Hi there,

When trying to short something by clicking 'sell' in Share Dealing, I get the message that I "have no existing position to close on this market"... but I'm wanting to sell to open a position.

What am I missing? 



Hi, with IG you can't sell shares you don't own on the share dealing platform. You would need to use one of the leveraged platforms such as spread bet (UK ) or CFD.
