#1 of 2 Question about shorts that isn't covered in Help.
Aug 26, 2008 (1:12 pm)
After stocks retire, we can no longer buy or sell. Nowhere in the Help section does it mention anything about shorted stocks when Retirement rolls around.
Suppose upon retirement I have shorted stock in my portfolio. Since I can't buy the stock back (cover), I lose everything, correct? In fact, I'd be in debt.
JULY 31: Shorted YUKh at $30.
AUG 31: Retirement comes and YUKh is retired.
SEP 03: Edmunds software calculates YUKh to be $5.94 per share.
AFTER SEP 03: Since I can no longer buy stock, I cannot buy YUKh at $5.94 to cover my initial short sale.
Is this scenario correct? Or does my short sale in YUKh get automatically covered on 03 SEP?

You will be covered. If you shorted YUKh at $30 and we set its final price to $6, then you will make a nice little bundle after we adjust your holdings to reflect the profit/cover.
