Groupon went public last week. I've been eagerly anticipating this event for months now so that I can short the heck out of this dog. But now that it's arrived I find I'm unable to through my current brokerage Tradeking. I messaged their CS and they said it won't be available to short through them anytime soon. Does anyone have or know of a brokerage that is able to short it now? I would presume I might have better luck with a larger one like Etrade, but I'm not sure.
Yes, I'm aware of the risks of shorting. Don't worry, I'm not actually putting much money there. It's more for fun than anything.
