I'm taking the opposite trade to Boho on this one, I bought BA hoping for a bounce off the bad news low. But I was too late so I got in at 378 and am currently down (it's 376 right now). So both Boho and I are losers on this trade! LOL. We'll see what happens.

So, how does what I did work? The longer I wait to buy the shorted stock, do I pay a higher fee? Is there a time limit?

No, there's no time limit. It's basically just the opposite of buying a stock. If it's a dividend-paying stock, in real life you have to pay the dividends, I believe. But I don't know if that happens in this simulator. I read the help sections on short selling and they didn't mention it, so I think you're probably off the hook for that.

If you shorted a stock, the simulator does remove dividends from your cash. If it didn't, that would be a huge flaw.

I tried a Buy to Cover at $365.10 for BA and it said it's an invalid symbol, then I tried again and it worked. I don't think I'll try changing it again but multiple attempts could work.
