is td ameritrade good for shorting and buying penny stocks? and how much money do you need for margin? and do you use level 2 and charting and is it thinkorswim platform for charting and level 2, and are the executions great do you get filled?

@trader91 Havent started to short yet, still new but i tried on paper account and they did not have some shares to borrow.
