I wonder if people that "go short" could comment on this technique.
Has going short met your expectations, or have you been overwhelmed and caught out by it? Maybe you were lumbered with a dividend payment you had to recoup to the owner, or maybe you had to pay some form of fail fee?
Was it too easy to lose control?
I am also very interested in the following
Which brokers do you use for your shorting? Do they do everything you need?
Do you find it easy / difficult / quick / slow?
What is your preferred shorting mechanism?
CFD / Option / Borrowed ASX shares / Other
Would you be willing to try one of the above mechanisms that you have not already tried?
How long do you stay in short position – what is your longest time?
I think there are many people here like me that may be waiting to put their foot in the short water. Your answers and experiences may make it easier for us
