All in the same margin account
Trade stocks, options and exchange-traded funds on margin, or sell short positions, all in the same margin account!
Margin accounts let you purchase eligible securities with borrowed money. The amount you borrow is based on a percentage of the value and quality of your investments, and the cash or value you have in your account.
Short selling is used when an investor anticipates a stock price will decrease and wants to profit by selling the stock and then buying it back at a lower price.
There are risks associated with purchasing or shorting securities on Margin, as fluctuation in market value of securities could lead to losses in excess of the value of your investments. This feature is not intended for novice investors, as adverse price movements could lead to theoretically unlimited loss.
