Costs for position borrowing of stocks with special considerations (for example, hard to borrow instruments) are usually higher than for normal availability stocks. These additional costs will be passed on in the form of lower short stock credit interest. Please note that this may lead t a net debit short stock credit interest in the event that the costs to borrow exceed the interest earned. In order to view the indicative short stock interest rates for a specific stock, Place Trade recommends that customers utilize the Short Stock (SLB) Availability tool located under Account Management/Tools.
