Ernie asked:
What broker are you using to trade these?
Can you do it readily?
What are the fee charges?


1. Interactive Brokers
2. Follow this link:

http://www.interactivebrokers.com/en/?f=%2Fen%2Ftrading%2FSe...

In the search window type in: FAS

Choose Check Availability on the right for FAS. Right at this moment it is 100,000.

Now type in FAZ and choose Check Availability. It is also 100,000.

3. This will differ for each and every broker, and the actual cost will depend on the size you short. Read this for more explanation:

All (nearly all) these have inverse 3x ETF's. You simply buy the inverse, no need to short.

The point of this is to short BOTH the bullish side and the inverse side at the exact same time.
