Calculating the Cost of Borrowing Stock at Interactive Brokers

There are two factors for the daily cost associated with short selling of stocks and bonds ("eligible SB securities") at IBCE:

  • Borrow Fee – for each eligible SB security there is an indicative rate available on the TWS and the Client Portal.
  • Borrow Servicing Fee - for each eligible SB security denominated in currencies with negative interest rates we charge a fee.
