You appear to be in the UK, so I'd recommend spread betting - certainly if you have a shorter term outlook. This is how I do it, although I'm not doing it much at the moment!

Frsp started this thread Yes, UK. It is supposed to be for a long-term hedge.

Not sure about the longer term, have you looked at inverse ETFs?

Warrants are for long term. No idea if they do some for indices, but they should. They would be stupid to not take business.
