Is there actually an alternative given that I want to short the shares? Plus the fact that I'm in the UK and these are US stocks maybe complicates things re using a stockbroker.

Ignore, ETX are a good broker! Its purely due to the huge volume at the moment and the automated systems cant handle it. Guy sat next to me cant even get filled on a demo account!! -

Thanks. Maybe I'm being a bit harsh on ETX. It was a blind choice whether I used ETX or City Index - neither is my usual broker. I'll look at anyoption.

There's very little chance of actually shorting the stock. There just isn't any to borrow and most brokers simply won't bother to find any for you on opening day. That's normal for any large IPO.
