seems like you've been shorting the banks since ANZ was $14.
No sorry Barcoo I've never shorted ANZ before.

I seem to recall this is probably the 3rd top you've called for ANZ
No never said ANZ had topped out not even once, let alone 3 times.

How about you also tell us when you close out the short positions as well so we can tell whether you are
Well sure I'll do that for you.I'm still holding CBA short & will let you know when I close it out, this is the only one I've held short for some time the rest I only shorted yesterday.

"just flapping in the breeze" (to use your terminology).
No not my terminology you got me mixed up with someone else.
How about you ease up on your attitude Barcoo, it don't help anyone acting in such a confrontational way.

When you sell short do you actually "sell short" or use puts?
Yes I actually sell short.

Wouldn't puts be less risky than shorts
No not at all puts are good for short term plays I like selling short on longer term moves.

See Bendigo has got creamed of late as well, dam should have shorted that one I was certain that it was way over the top, live & learn.
