Shorting stocks from portfolio


Recommended Posts

Hi, two questions.....

1.Is it possible to short stocks (in the CFD or spreadbetting function) and use your own stocks from your share dealing portfolio as collateral?

2. Does IG use customers stock positions to open up their own shorts? or lend shares to 3rd parties for shorting?  And if so, is the owner of those stocks entitled to a percentage of the profits from others shorting them?

HI @Ben111,

1. You can use up to 95% of your Shareholdings value as a professional trader. More information here.

    • Dear All, On the September 22 I could not sell Presto automation stock $PRST.  I have reported that to IG helpdesk, had multiple calls etc. It is not obvious where this process is going and I need my refund money ASAP. I have sent the screenshots etc.
