Can I have long and short position at the same time?

Question

Hi, I remember when I first logged onto my account, I was asked if I want an ability to have long and short positions for the same e.g. currency pair and I think I selected no. Can I set it back to yes somehow? Couldn't find it in settings. Any help would be appreciated.

    • *parp!*  Ooh what's that smell!  
    • Using Spread bet is not suitable for scalping in my view , you get filled and exit at a poor price and its hard to cover a spread. Depends on what your definition of a 'scalp'  is though   Share dealing is  a lot better for US stocks (no fees) but you need the capital and can only go long. 
    • The point Rayner was making is if you only have a five point target and your win rate is not very high it is probably not a viable strategy.
