Update on the brokerage. lol. Got with ETrade, I can't get used to their ETRADEPRO platform after using STT for a couple weeks. It seems really confusing. But thank you guys for the help. Just put 5k in ETRADE

If you keep 100% equity on your short then you don't get charged interest. ie. you have $2k in your account and you short $2k of a stock then there is no interest. Also, E*Trade does not charge interest for intraday shorting, at least that's what they just told me.

Please be aware of the above rule if you use etrade for shorting. I lost a big chunk of my account due to it

@dux Why haven't you updated your trades in a while? Are you taking break from trading? I am pretty sure you would have crossed $1 million mark by now if are trading
