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

    • @Foxy No you cant just trade anything, its licenced, i believe there are 61 pairs/markets that the program can trade in. Each Pair has a retail price of $3300inc but i never paid that, i got my initial 5 pairs for $5500. For my $15K i got another 20 pairs, this time including Gold, and a couple of Index's.
    • If one was unsure about investing in specific funds and trusts then they could consider constructing an ETF portfolio based on these technology themes. The potential is there for higher returns on specialist funds and trusts due to stock picking and capital allocation strategies. However, an ETF, will be a lower cost option but not necessarily a better performing one.
    • Now I have openly shared that I have invested in Bitcoin via XBT Provider One in the SEK (Swedish Krona) currency as I am not sure what the future for the Euro holds with Brexit uncertainty and what any hard Brexit implications may be for other EU Member States. However, you can invest in this in EUR currency too. The same applies for in Ether as well. It now offers ETN's for XRP and Litecoin.  There is also the Grayscale Bitcoin Investment Trust which is trading at a premium but if Bitcoin does well then this too could flourish for investors. This product is more for investing in Bitcoin rather than trading it. It presents a great way for an someone to gain exposure to Bitcoin in their portfolio without having to either physically acquire it and opening a Crypto Wallet, etc. or trading it. I believe nearly 3/4 of the demand from investors investing in this trust is from institutional investors including hedge funds based on the first quarter of 2019.
