Shorting has been around for ages you only have to have an options ok on your account. The difference now is you can short a much smaller amount of stock. Previously you could only do 100 share lots. The danger is that like many options plays you can lose much more than your initial investment thus a reserve amount is required before you can play. I you wanted to short a block of Berkshire Hathaway that is a lot.
