    Default Short selling


    Just wondering if there's a way to short sell small companies that don't have options or CFDs?

    ASX site has a list of the current shortable stocks --- basically they've got to be a relatively large cap.

    CMC have their own list of shorts, which include stocks not covered by the ASX shorts list.

    You can try contracts for difference (CFDs), but keep in mind they are very risky. Also, it depends on how small these companies are, because most CFD providers don't allow you to go long (not to mention short sell) companies that are below a certain market cap.

    the idea is to short the smallest companies.
    CMC only allows shorting on about 220 Co's .
