Short Selling

Don't do MFE/MSc Math fin

I'd just add that the vast majority of people who apply for the MFE programmes aren't PhD material. That's why they're doing a Masters (and not a PhD) in the first place. Edit: I'm not saying this is a good or a bad thing (hell, most of the super rich don't have PhD's), it's just a fact.

Short Selling

New shorting rules and regs.It is country by country and shorting is often only a small fraction of total stock on loan, too small to have the impact we are seeing? For example, HBOS has only 3.5% of shares on loan - how can this account for a 40% fall in share price ?
