Can you short stocks as a swing trader with a retail account?

1

I don’t know much about retail accounts, like ameritrade or scottrade. If you have a retail account as such, and want to swing trade, can you short stocks, like you can as a day trader?

    Yes as long as you have a margin account…. but the “I don’t know much about retail accounts” tells me you don’t need to be on the short side of the market. There are other requirements to short and it varies broker to broker.
