I've been exploring ways to make money in markets while the market is going down and i've been considering CFDS (for shorting shares). There seems to be a lot of controversy about them, so still looking at that. can i ask, what other equities/stocks/markets and so on could one trade when the asx market is going down? i don't work many hours (long story) so i'm really interested in finding ways to make money when our market is also going down and not just up. or perhaps i should try IB and look for long trades for international shares (?).
also, any cheap but also good cfd brokers/providers that people can suggest for me?
