New Search Category for the Grid - Short Sales

#1

Would you please put a search column in the Grid for investments which do not use short sales. I invest tax qualified funds (401(k)) and can’t invest in short sales. Inverse funds are OK it’s just short sales i.e., leverage which is not permitted.category which is not permitted.

I want to second that and to say that maybe a category that says the max leverage used, perhaps in the form of a percentage. So if the strategy at one point had a liquidation value of $100,000 but at the same moment had purchased or sold $20,000 on margin show that the max margin they had used was 20% of net liquidation value. This would be great as a chart feature too for the equity curve. Maybe a total Value at risk for the chart would be good.

I’d like to renew my request for a column in the Grid to filter short sales. It would really help those investing qualified plan funds which can’t invest in short sales.
