Question: There isnt a way to short a stock on Robinhood…whats a good alternative commissiom-free platform to do so, if there is one?
Maia Reid: There aint one.
Sloane Page: I dont think there is another fully trade-fee-free platform full stop
Yaretzi Ramos: Havent seen it!
Bristol Todd: Probably not a chosen method for novices anyway, thanks!
Yaretzi Ramos: Shorting implies you believe you can predict the market in the short-term 🙂
Bristol Todd: Sell short
Adrianna Sherman: Use synthetics stocks since options are free on RH
Bristol Todd: TH?
Maia Reid: There are low cost brokers if thats what youre looking for. Tastyworks is the next lowest probably. Alternatively you have Interactive Brokers which a large number of shorters use, but requires a 10k account to open (real low trade fees), but you dont have to worry much about shares being available to short.
Sadie Barnes: Thinkorswim
