Short Stock Availability Tool 

 

 

The Short Stock Availability Tool, part of Place Trade’s Stock Borrow Loan system, is a fully electronic, self-service utility that lets you search for real-time availability of shortable stocks. It's easy to access within Account Management.


 

 

The Short Stock Availability Tool lets you:

 

  • View quantity available, number of lenders, and current indicative borrow rate (the rate at which dealers in the Securities Lending/Borrowing Market are willing to transact today).

  • View historical indicative borrow rates and download these rates in a comma-separated values (.csv) file, which you can open in Microsoft Excel.

  • Search for any shortable stock by symbol and exchange, ISIN or CUSIP number.
 
  • Upload a bulk request text file to search for availability of multiple shortable stocks at once.

  • Download prepared lists of shortable stocks grouped by country.
