Shorters got badly burnt at Berkeley Homes, they don't always get it right.

hi on the shorters list was Ocado - then they released upbeat results....it's always about how the company performs - or under-performs nothing more nothing less.

winston270 - Interserve's debt is trading at 50%. Sellers already think it's going out of business. It's only thick PIs who have no knowledge, no business experience and no clue who think that shorting can put a company into administration or liquidation.

Well this is very non-PC, but if honours are taken away from some people on the basis of harm done... they should be taken away from others surely ? Or are there acceptable sorts of harm ? eg harm by omission.

Below from the media...how do you measure top talent?... As Carillion hurtled towards ­collapse putting 20,000 jobs at risk, fatcat bosses ­continued to line their pockets while being handed public cash by their Tory cronies. And once again the taxpayer is left to pick up the bill for another failed ­privatised firm in a bid to rescue the public services it had contracts with, such as schools, prisons and hospitals. Blundering chief executive Richard Howson was paid £55,000 a month basic salary – even though he quit last July after the first of two dire profit warnings.

Is there any one person responsible for the debacle of CLLN?...

Minerve - yes agree, though I'm fairly sure IG will hedge either way if they can as they make money on fees. As a derivative I assume I am having little or no effect on the actual market, not that my tiny volume would anyway. My CI account is much smaller than my IG one so they may just want me to use the money, but their stated reason was the receiver had declared a definite wipe out for shareholders. There isn't really a sensible way to express the concept of betting against via a derivative other than to say going short, even if it isn't strictly accurate.

Erogenous Jones. A client who was florist to a 5 star hotel was owed £25,000. The hotel was in trouble and told suppliers if they pushed for payment they would get nothing. Together with a solicitor we sent a fax saying if were weren’t payed immediately we would put them into bankruptcy. I rang 20 minutes after the fax was sent. Panic. Within 10 minutes we agreed £10,000 immediately, then £10,000 and £5,000 after 4 and 8 weeks. All was paid on time. I have never felt so powerful!!!

frazboy Yes, you are right, the inbalances are most likely underwritten but they reduce their exposure by the spread and I understand even then the inbalances are mostly underwritten via other derivatives to reduce costs and liquidity risks etc..

Minerva, I don't disagree with anything you say - I think of the spreadbetters as bookies, and I take their stock borrowing charges with a pinch of salt; all they do is balance their book, however presumably they must underwrite certain positions in the market when clients are generally long

Most here who think they are shorting the stock are not. They are spread-betting and placing a bet that the tracked asset will fall in value. There is no loan of stock and the execution does not touch the listed market. With spread-betting it is a bet, that is all, against a counter-party that is betting the other way. The spread-betting firm balances one set of betters against the opposite side. THERE ARE ACCEPTIONS but few; generally, shorting a stock, borrowing the shares, is a institutional activity only. Even high net-worths are generally refused by brokers. So your 'short' being closed here is probably all down to the terms and conditions associated with the spread-betting company's service to you and their action of the bet on the associated asset being suspended or withdrawn from list. This is probably why City Index have settled and IG haven't. Nothing primarily to do with the administrators or the LSE - all to do with your spread-betting company. At the most, it might just be a case that they are waiting written confirmation from the administrators that the game is truly over.

They're waiting for 'market instruction' apparently. Meanwhile they continue to charge interest on both long and short positions and of course stock borrowing charges on short positions too.

City Index already closed my short in full. Hope IG see sense and do the same pronto.

From time to time our customers are very late in paying their bill. At 60 days, a telephone call, at 90 days a second telephone call and 120 days we issue a statutory demand. That is usually sufficient to get immediate payment, but one customer allowed the demand to pass the 30 day mark. That was a very interesting telephone conversation on the 31 day. There is no requirement for the demand to be issued by a Court and will, if not settled allow for the immediate issue of bankruptcy proceedings.
