Blackxacto started this thread Some clarity after reading suggested threads on shorting.

I sell my brokers stock, agreeing to replace his stock in a time period. I guess I was hung up on the front end selling. If the market is swinging downward, and I am hoping for buyers in declining momentum, do the buyers ever get scared and evaporate? The short will not happen right if there are no buyers?

Re: Shorting

I apologise.
If you wanted to sell your car for 5k and there were no buyers, and still none at 4k, nor 3k not because it was only actually worth 1k but because they 'evaporated', do you think there would still be no buyers @ 0.01p/c?

Not that fair value has any place in todays markets.
