Shorting has been around for ages you only have to have an options ok on your account. The difference now is you can short a much smaller amount of stock. Previously you could only do 100 share lots. The danger is that like many options plays you can lose much more than your initial investment thus a reserve amount is required before you can play. I you wanted to short a block of Berkshire Hathaway that is a lot.

Shorting and put options are similar but different. Never actually did either because the only times it looked attractive would have put me in Dutch with the SEC for insider trading, so it goes.

Stock talk on a hiking forum!?

This!... This was the confirmation I was looking for that confirms that we are indeed in a stock market bubble just about to burst.

The collapse continues -- I wonder what percentage of the Redit posters that encouraged others to buy and hold sold as the stock was climbing.
