No Shares Available to Short?
That was one of two error messages I got from Scottrade today when I tried to short Federal Trust Corp. (Amex: FDT), one of the stocks I mentioned in this recent post, "The Strongest and Weakest Banks in America". FDT had risen from about 65 cents per share when I posted that to 85 cents per share, and after following its candlestick charting on Americanbulls.com, I intended to short it at 80 cents today. Plan foiled.
