Short & Distort

Short & Distort (S&D) is the inverse of Pump & Dump. Unscrupulous traders will short a stock as soon as they detect that a downtrend has begun. They will then start a smear campaign against the company. This will distort the supply and demand situation and create a false market.

Bursa has just introduced short selling. This is definitely good for Bursa. It may not be good for your bank account. If you are new to short selling, learn the trick of the game before you get involved.

Easy money is not easily made.
Only when you are smart can you ride the wave
Good things come to those who wait
But don’t wait and wait until it’s too late.
