DOW at $30, could fall to $25, but I think this is not a good short--too late. The overall market should bottom at about 8000 on the dow. It is too late to make a lot of money shorting stocks. CSCO may go below $10. Intel may go below $15. I think DOW may go to $25, especially if oil prices stay high ($25/barrel). A good short is a stock that may drop to zero, or drop more than 30%. DOW may drop 15%--not the best choice for a short. Accumulate cash, look to go long in late fall/early spring.
