Pssst. Buy shorts.

Just a heads up: if you live near a late-night shopping centre you might want to pop out pronto for some shorts. Just heard on the radio that the FSA is clamping down on them from midnight so if we have an Indian summer you’ll be up shit creek.

Sorry, my mistake: it’s short selling they’re talking about. About time too: imagine if they’d dithered until a big bank went pop.

A hedge fund chap popping into the FSA for a pair of shorts earlier today. He thought it said C&A.
