<DIV>Harley,<BR><BR>Suggest you take a look at the IRS &quot;wash sales&quot; 
rule before the end of the<BR>year. You may have a rude tax &quot;surprise&quot; 
waiting for you by trading in and<BR>out of the same stock that you've incurred 
a loss in.<BR><BR>As an aside, shorting individual stocks during a bull market 
is a high<BR>risk/low reward game for the small investor. Especially a NASDAQ 
stock<BR>because you never know what games the market makers are playing. Like 
you've<BR>noticed, when a stock starts to fall it's almost impossible to jump on 
the<BR>downtrend because of the uptick rule. If the stock is optionable, 
it's<BR>smarter to buy the nearmonth PUT, though the volatility part of the 
premium<BR>usually explodes in a fast downdraft.<BR><BR>FYI, when the market in 
general goes thru these period corrections you are<BR>much better off selling 
S&amp;P Spiders (SPY) to play the downside. Check them<BR>out on the AMEX. In 
fact, outside of a few S&amp;P 100 stocks, I trade Spiders<BR>almost 
exclusively.<BR><BR>Just my opinion,<BR>Rick

3<BR><BR><BR>&gt;Hello Dick &amp; Jerry,<BR>&gt;<BR>&gt;The original idea for me 
came when I was short and then wanted to go<BR>&gt;long but didn't because you 
have to sit for ever waiting for the uptick<BR>&gt;to short a NASDAQ 
stock.<BR>&gt;<BR>&gt;So I decided to open another account. Then I can be short 
in one account<BR>&gt;and daytrade long in the other account if the opportunity 
came up. I<BR>&gt;trade over the internet so I don't have the luxury of being 
able to call<BR>&gt;the broker to do as your friend. But in essence I get the 
same results.<BR>&gt;Except he gets to short on the down tick is the only 
diffference.<BR>&gt;<BR>&gt;There is one advantage that I see. If something goes 
against you, you<BR>&gt;can go flat and lock in that lose in hopes to work your 
way out of it.<BR>&gt;That is what I am doing with YHOO. You can lock in proftis 
as well with<BR>&gt;out closing out the position. Which what I could of done 
with YHOO a few<BR>&gt;days ago.<BR>&gt;<BR>&gt;Now this is all new to me Jerry 
so I might look back at this and say,<BR>&gt;&quot;Gee was I spinning my 
wheels.&quot; But for now it keeps me on my toes and<BR>&gt;keeps me working at 
this. I get bored very easy. (Must be that 120 IQ.)<BR>&gt;<BR>&gt;Well better 
go, YHOO is a movin'<BR>&gt;<BR>&gt;Harley<BR>&gt;<BR>&gt;&gt; P.S. Harley, is 
this what you do
