From IB: Maintenance Margin = $2.50 if Stock Value <= $2.50 "For short positions, the maintenance requirement on stock greater than $5, is $5 per share or 30% of the stock value, whichever is greater. For short positions in stock where the last sale price/share is less than $5, then the maintenance margin requirement is $2.50 per share or 100% of the stock value, whichever is greater." http://ibkb.interactivebrokers.com/node/285 Shorting penny stocks isn't economically feasible.
