Fees & Interest

How do I determine whether there is a cost to borrow a stock before entering a short sale order in TWS?

Selling stock short with MEXEM involves borrowing shares for delivery to the purchaser. The cost to borrow depends on supply and demand. MEXEM offers tools to estimate this cost, like the Shortable column and the SLB Rates tool in TWS. These rates fluctuate daily and are finalized at day's end. More information about calculating borrowing costs can be found on our website.
