Shorting (EUFN) - iShares Eu Financials ETF

Recommended Posts

Hey gang.

Just asking if it's possible to allow me to short EUFN -  (iShares MSCI Eu Financials ETF).

and

EWQ -  (iShares MSCI France ETF).

if not is there another vehicle I can use to short either of these.

 

As always Thanks for your help.

@h7,

You may wish to consider 'shorting' this via IG's UK Spread Betting platform. I have just checked and it appears on IG's UK Spread Betting platform.

I just had a look at the chart and it seems that the big downward move has already occurred. It may well continue moving downwards but just be careful that when you short this that the trade does not go against you pretty quickly.

EUFN  is currently unborrowable I'm afraid. If you wanted to give us a call we can try and find borrow in the market, however we'd only be able to look to do this over the phone (and unfortunately there is no guarantee we'll be able to find borrow from our liquidity providers).

Yes you can short on the spreadbetting platform.....interestingly I was only yesterday thinking is it viable to trade the price of an ETF (longterm trade!) rather than invest in it to avoid any future tax liability (as profits from spread betting are tax free).....I live in IRE and tax liability on ETFs is very complicated (and large!)......Good luck anyway!

Appreciate your feedback

    • Thursday's pre-market big names and charts.
    • US durable goods data at 1:30 pm today. Dow and S&P still loitering just under the ATHs losing momentum but not looking too concerned, still waiting for a push. On the H1 Dow working it's way up to the new daily pivot around 26600 and Dax looking up at a first target of yesterday's high at 12350.
    • @Xtian, Unfortunately the DRIP option is not available on IG. I accept this is disappointing for those who really want this option. This question keeps on constantly appearing. There are other threads on this very question where you will find more detail. If you type 'DRIP' or 'Dividend Reinvestment' in the search box and press enter then you should find other threads with this very question. 
    • @tombarrow, On IG's UK Spread Betting platform there are quite a few Commodities that have both the 'Spot' and 'Futures' option available trade. There are some where just 'Spot' is available and others where 'Futures' is just available. You will have to go through them to ascertain which they are. If you look at Precious Metals then they all have a 'Spot' and 'Futures' option. I suppose there is more liquidity from a markets / trading perspective which could possibly be the reason for this. Yes there is overnight funding for 'Spot'. You are right 'Futures' do not have overnight funding but the spreads are less attractive.  No overnight funding will not be displayed on the trade. IG will inform you of the charges by sending you a daily statement which includes them. You can alternatively go to the charges / cost section and try and work out the charges yourself.
    • Hi there New to trading metals and wanted to understand a bit more about the spot and futures pricing. I'll make the question in sections so it is easier to answer. 1) For base metals it seems only HG Copper has a futures and spot option. Does this mean there are no futures trading for the other metals? Or is the spot price derived from the LME 3 Month Futures Price? 2) Are there expiry dates on the spot prices and is there overnight funding for spot? (I am aware futures do not have overnight funding but are embedded into the spreads).   3) If there is overnight funding or an expiry date will they be displayed on the trade?
