Hey all. I am asking about an issue I am having with TWS (IB) and the trade ideas brokerage plus integration.
It seems like my strategy consistently sends short orders that aren’t filled right away and IB has a little binoculars symbol and says that the particular shares aren’t readily available for short sale.
My questions are 1) is there a way to fill these orders more consistently. I am currently SMART routing with MAX FILL. 2) is there a screen the stocks that aren’t readily available for short sale or 3) is there a list of symbols that are likely easy to short. I can always place the symbols as the only available list to trade.
Thanks for the help!
