sell trade on equity futures.

Guest NJ879


Hi all,

I've been exploring equity futures, and I've encountered a problem.  Sometimes, although the sell box is lit up, when you try and place the trade you get a message that "this transaction cannot be completed because of the high cost of stock borrowing in the underlying market".   This is a bit of an issue, as you can't tell which stocks are going to hit this until you try to place a trade.  Most of the FTSE 100 stocks seem to be OK.  All of the FTSE 250 and the NASDAQ seem to show this behaviour and some of the S&P 500.   Anyone else hit this problem, and does anyone know of a definitive list of which stocks you can actually sell a future in?

Any info gratefully received.

    • In the previous year, #bullrun2024 had been a trending hashtag as most crypto enthusiasts continually drooled over the prospects of witnessing another bull cycle. 2024 is finally here and so far so good has produced only fireworks. BTC has soared to 60k+, the market is green, and there’s a general sense that the bulls are returning. If there’s one thing that pays most in such bullish market, it is the flair to spot early gems and position oneself before a breakout. In that regard, Bitget has been my plug for a few years running. The early listing of $ORDI last year for instance before Binance listing 7 months after, and a surge ultimately is well documented. This year alone, Bitget has continued its wealth creation for users nicely, coins like $PORTAL, $GPT, $GTAI and so on have gone on to print for investors as depicted in the picture below. Web3 rewards not just active participation, but strategic positioning. There’s no gainsaying that the key to securing insane profits in this market is by positioning early and strategically too. Bitget’s eagle-eye for spotting early gem is a flex. Numbers don’t lie.  
    • Portal itself is awesome. Those who haven't got any airdrop, I think it's best time to accumulate for them.. tho, I'm gonna DCA....
    • Nope the hype is worth it. The project is dope itself as well as the team. Already deposited my bag at Bitget... Let's hope for the best 🤞
