    if youre shortting this market today... the only way youre going to get filled is by buying married puts... then shorting... i ve been waiting on some short executions for what seems like hours and theyre robbing me .50 cents here and .50 there... just a lil heads up...
  2. Short the ETFs and es/nq until you get filled on the stocks:D

    i have no idea what any of that is... (could you explain???)
  4. Your kidding I hope. No uptick rule on ETF's. If you don't have bullets it's your only viable option sometimes. :-(
  5. No shares to borrow on the futures so you can get filled immediately.

    If you do not know what ETF's are, then you should not be trading.

  9. If you don't know what ETFs are, pick up the latest issue of Active Trader. It has a good article on ETFs.
  10. ETF = exchange-traded fund. QQQ SPY DIA etc

    No uptick for shorting. Same for the iShares (HOLDRs) SMH BBH etc. They make for quick short entries when the market's dropping fast and you can't get filled on stocks.
