Hey - some account types are known as 'limited risk' in that they only allow you to open positions which have a fixed risk value to yourself. Selling options can result in unlimited risks / losses on the account, and are known to be inherently risky.  Due to these reasons, 'limited risk' accounts can not short sell options. 

Please check your emails as your account type should have been clearly laid out, not only in the sign up process and account opening, but in the email confirmations forwarded on.

    • Another blow to economic growth - EMEA Brief 15 Feb
      Weak retail figures in the US have spilled over to most major stock markets, with European stocks set to open lower this morning. The 1.2% decline in retail sales for the month of December, the biggest drop in almost ten years,  have brought new fears that we are facing a global economic slowdown. The DJIA closed 104 points lower at 25,439.39, the S&P 500 closed 7 points lower at 2,745.73, whilst the Nasdaq managed to close in the positive with a gain of 6.6 points at 7,426.96.
