Hi all,

Does anybody know how can I access the 'Offer To Sell' feature?

There is only an 'Offer To Buy' option available. Is there a way to do this or it's not available yet?

Replying to my post...

Apparently the ?Offer to sell? option is enabled only when I have more than 200 shares. Can anyone confirm this?

It seems odd...

it's normal, because non-premium account can only sell what is owned, ie no short-selling allowed.

I wish short selling was allowed. There are so many stocks that I feel are so overpriced, I *know* they are going to go down.

But I have question of my own. With all the "volume" for each stock.. (The number sold/bought next to each stock), I find it hard to believe the Hall of Fame totals for Weekly Top Traders (Volume). The numbers don't add up.

Are there really that many people trading less than 5k stock a week, to make these stocks rise/fall so much?

i believe the weekly volume/value is not very accurate, it still need work to properly collect and process the available data.

so at this stage it's just an indication only. However i can confirm that there are many casual traders, who either trade very little, or have many small buy/sell-listings.
