    Default Short Selling - NYSE Stock

    Is this article referring that I couldn't short sell the following stocks. Can I still do it using CFD's ? Currently I am trying on a demo software by CMC Markets and seems like it is allowing me to short citigroup.

    The short selling restrictions have been lifted by the SEC after August 12th 2008:

    Different CFD providers allow you to trade CFDs short on different stocks so you may want to ask them if you can do a CFD short on those stocks.

    I trade only CFDs short on the Nasdaq and NYSE via MF Global. They have a large selection of stocks to choose from. The way I see it, there's no point in selling the physical stock short if you can do a CFD trade. Its far more cost effective because of margin (usually 10-20%). And you even get credited interest when holding a CFD short position.
