Hi Tim, congrats on your recent short with OLMM, could you please help me understand how you were able to keep stocks longer than three days, as I understood that after three days brokers can call back stocks. Is it because you Borrow stocks instead (at a cost). I am a new challenge student and not sure I got that difference right if there is any between the word shorting and borrowing. Thanks, Eric

Brokers can call back stocks after three days, that doesn't mean they will.

got it, I thought Borrowing stocks was referring for another type of deal. Well done again

I know, but just thought it kind of funny that he used hope about 3 times. Like his info and is very useful.

@Dutchie777 No one knows exactly what a stock is going to do. All you can do is go in with a strategy.

I dont know. I just replied to the post about IB and no pdt. Maybe you have some knowledge about this subject?

Sorry, not that much. Right now i have an account with IB end E trade, but are still paper trading and do not use them that much yet.

Sorry, I was wrong. I meant another IB based broker, but I heated bad things about the execution.
