So how easy is it to short sell?
1) Watch BBC news to see the result of the vote on the bail out.
2) When news arrives that it has not gone through, log on to Paddy Power.
3) Bet ten pounds the DOW will close below 10566 at 5-6
4) Profit. DOW closes at
10404 10365.45*. Collect £18.33, gain of £8.33
Not bad for ten minutes of no work.
* The DOW was even lower after wrap up calculations.
