How can I short a stock?

CornèrTrader offers you the possibility of shorting single stocks with the use of CFDs. 

Cash stocks cannot be shorted. However, you can place bearish bets on stocks by shorting the CFD. 

A Contract for Difference (CFD) is a financial contract between a client and a CFD provider where the difference between the opening and closing prices of a position is cash settled upon closing of the position. 

CFDs can be traded from the Trade ticket in the Trading tab.

You can find a full list of CFDs available for trading by using the Instrument Explorer in the Trading tab of the trading platform. 

Please remember that CFDs are a margin product. The trading conditions and margin requirements for each particular instrument can be found in the trading platform in the Trading Conditions sections of the Account tab.
