    DXD?????????????????????????



    QQQQ and DXD are 2 TOTALLLLLY DIFFERENT ETFS.


    DXD is the 2X ULTRA SHORT DOW 30 ETF


    As for the original poster, you dont want to short QQQQ, BUY PSQ INSTEAD.

    PSQ
    PSQ
    PSQ


    NOT DXD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
     
  7. Exactly!

    Btw, I don't know if I'd want to be shorting the Nasdaq right now...
     
  8. I prefer QID as the inverse etf to short qqqq's. If your broker doesn't have shares available to short, just buy this. Also, ditch your broker, if they can't find shares to short on such a liquid etf, they're not worth using.

    ps. ok will make a note of psq, thnx.
     
  10. Or as an alternative you can short the Single Stock Future on the QQQQ ETF in either a 1000 multiplier or a 100 multiplier. Both have two sided markets being made by marketmakers.

    Best
