Is there a way to write a script to pull information out of Active Trade Pro? I am trying to determine if a security I am trading is shortable through Fidelity. Unfortunately, this information is only availble on a web site or thru Active Trade Pro, based on the info I got at the fidelity branch. If this is not possible, does anyone know how this information can be obtained from the WLScript? Thanks in advance.

It's highly unlikely that AT Pro provide a public method for this purpose, but you can call Fidelity support and ask them to double check it for you. If they have a web page that lists shortable securities, then there's a better possibility.
