GSEs will probably be nationalized by end of 09.|
Shorting to zero or close to it by direct short is a nice idea but it'll be a rough ride and you'll probably be bucked off by your broker at just the wrong time.
For the passive, how about an FNM JAN 2010 20/10 put debit (=Bear) spread for a potential 200% return?
Or for the more active perhaps a series of front month naked calls is the best means of attack.
Good trading everybody!
