I would like to see a tutorial and/or a demonstration of an actual executed short trade in TOS, preferably a paper-trade with a tied trailing-stop. I've been searching for the above, but all the video demonstrations I've seen either cover the very basic concept, which I'm already passably familiar with, or go off on options tangents and other things I'm not interested in at the moment. I just want to see a simple stock short-sell order with a linked trailing stop. Any assistance would be appreciated, thank you kindly.

Need help? 1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first. 2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses. 3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make. 4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance. 5) Where to start as a trader?

Yes, but I figured it out; it's deceptively simple. However, nothing I attempt to short on paper-trading seems to be available to borrow, and I've tried using some very common, large-volume stocks. I'm wondering if TOS allows short selling in papertrade mode at all.
