I tried to short a few shares of Fannie Mae since eventually the common shares will not be tradeable anymore and it will go to Zero. Come on! Everyone knows by now it's going to Zero. This is SERIOUS SERIOUS SH*T. It is the same situation as Sirius Sattelite. Fannie Mae is nothing more than a quick trade for a fast buck. There is no staying power and it is going to ZERO. I couldnt short any trades at Ameritrade!!!
