Disclaimer: TradeZero America, Inc. does not provide trading advice or recommendations as to any security or trading strategy. Short selling as a trading strategy is extremely risky and can lead to potentially unlimited losses because there is no limit on the price increase of a security that a trader may have to pay to close a short position. A trader must also consider the potential ancillary costs of short selling. If a security is not easy to borrow, there will be per share locate fees for short selling. Further, a trader will pay daily overnight borrow fees for holding a position overnight. These fees accumulate with the duration of the short position and can be very substantial, potentially surpassing any trading profits. Also, there is a chance that TradeZero America, Inc. or its clearing firm could lose the borrowed shares on a short position. If that occurs, the trader, TradeZero America, Inc., its clearing firm will have to close the short position without exception and no matter the price, prior to the beginning of regular trading hours on the following trading day.
