Read the FAQ before you post questions, girl. Gotta
remember that. Okay, so in reference to post 1, you're
essentially borrowing the STOCK, and not the money. Do
I have that right?
My original question sort of still stands: isn't that
a lot like screwing the broker's company, when you repurchase stock
and return it at a lower value? Why would a brokerage allow
a customer to do this, considering the risk involved for them?
Or is there something that protects them from recieving
devalued stock back from a shorter?
Oh, I'm STILL all confused.
