    Default Short selling on eTrade?


    Was just wondering how do u do a 'short sale' on E Trade? Its looks like they have banned all non-long sales and if you want to short a stock you have to do it via transferring some money to a linked MFS CFD a/c. Anyone done this? Wanted to know before i made the transfer.

    As far as I know, it's not a service they provide. I believe it's listed somewhere on their site.
