I haven't been doing this a terribly long time but I have read all the Gardner books and I would suggest you take a look at them, especially The Motley Fool Investment Guide chapter 21. It talks about the dangers of things like 1)futures and 2)shorting stocks without much experience. I think most other Fools would say it's probably not a good idea to short the Dow. If you go to the home page here and look at the Fool School I'll bet you get some better ideas, like the Foolish Four. Fool on!
