Our partner: No. 1 in the best trading platform category, 5 out of 5 stars


Our range of availability:

You can also discover stocks that are difficult to borrow in our system and protect yourself from forced purchases (buy-ins) and recalls.

This is how easy it is to select securities that are available for short sales – in real time:

  • Add the Short Selling Stocks, Borrowing Rate, and Discount Rate columns in the Trader Workstation (TWS).
    The system will now show you the number of stocks that can be shorted, the current interest rate applied to borrowed stocks, and the discount rate for each stock.
  • Use our digital “Short Stock (SLB) Availability Tool” in the customer portal to select stocks that can be shorted in real time.
    The notification function informs you continuously about available loans.

Transparency is very important to us:

By customer friendliness, we understand transparency, reliability and efficiency for the lending and lending of stocks. This is guaranteed by our securities financing service with automated rate recognition and optimized creditworthiness. To determine our indicative prices, we combine various sources and list them together with the security availability in the securities financing tool.

Find out more about daily price trends and intraday data on times and sales in the Mosaic layout of the Trader Workstation (“SLB conditions”).

Act with global reach

In the USA alone, we work with over 60 counterparties, including lending agencies and broker-dealers.
We have contacts with counterparties around the world and thus offer you the opportunity to pursue targeted short selling strategies.

Competent teams in SLB desks in the USA, Europe and Asia are available to answer your questions about financing, lending and lending securities.

Tools for borrowing and lending stocks

We also provide technically advanced programs for our customers in our securities financing area:

The stock return optimization program ensures additional returns on fully paid-up shares in your account.

Select stocks for short sales according to their availability in real time with our fully electronic short stock availability tool.

TheINFO notification function informs you about the possibility of short selling stocks that were previously not available for loan.


We offer participation in our pre-borrow program especially for customers with portfolio margin accounts:
Borrow stocks in advance of a short sale (via the “Stock lending / lending” function in the Trader Workstation (TWS)) and thus avoid the risk of a forced purchase (buy-in) on the day of settlement.

The pre-borrowing ensures the availability of the required stocks before placing the short sale. You can therefore be certain that the shares will actually be available on the settlement day.

    Trading currencies, spot precious metals and other products on the trading platform involves significant risk of loss and is not suitable for all investors. Consider your experience, investment objectives, assets, income and risk tolerance before opening an account with Brokerpoint. It is possible that you may lose part or all of your initial investment. You should therefore not speculate, invest or hedge if you cannot afford a loss, have borrowed the capital, need it urgently, or if the amounts are necessary for your private living or that of your family. You should be aware of all risks associated with currency trading and other forms of investment and seek the advice of an independent financial advisor if you have any questions.
