    Hi Myla,

    Thanks for your message.

    I recommend reading our guide to short selling. We break down the mechanics of how it works and walk through suitable trading products, including CFDs.

    Spread betting is also an option as Christian has mentioned, but where are you based? I ask because while spread betting is permitted and popular in certain countries, notably the UK and Ireland, it’s not allowed in many jurisdictions.
