How do I short on a share dealing account? 

Hi @DavidIrimia,

You can't go short on a share dealing account. In trading, short describes a trade that will incur a profit if the asset being traded falls in price. It is also often referred to as going short, shorting or sometimes selling.

On a share trading account you will need to purchase the share at its full price ( as opposed to a CFD or Spread bet account) , if the shares price level fall you will incur a loss.

The most well-known method of shorting is short selling. There are two main methods of short selling:

  • When a trader borrows an asset they do not own from a broker and sells it on the market. Usually the borrowing and selling of the asset is taken care of by the broker.
  • Derivatives such as CFDs or spread bets enable traders to open short positions that do not require borrowing the underlying asset.

More information here.

All the best - Arvin
