How should I indicate my sell orders?

If you intend to sell more shares than the quantity you own, you should submit separate sell orders. You should place a normal sell order for the shares which you own and a short sell order for the quantity that you do not own.

Scenario:

  1. You do not own any share of Stock A and you intend to short sell 1,000 shares of Stock A. You have to submit a sell order of 1,000 shares by marking the “Short Sell” checkbox or click on the “Short Sell” button.

  2. You owned 2,000 shares of Stock A and you intend to short sell another 1,000 shares of Stock A. You have to submit a normal sell order of 2,000 shares, and separately submit another sell order of 1,000 shares by marking the “Short Sell” checkbox or click on the “Short Sell” button.
