Suppose that the American Congress (AC) passes a bill that prohibits the short selling of stocks, which makes impossible for investors to have profit when stock prices go down. However, AC doesn’t impose any restrictions on option trading. As a student of ADM2352, what is your advice to the investors who want to be short in a particular stock? In other words, provide a strategy on how to accomplish the equivalence of a short sale by using options and borrowed capital. Need a payoff table of the strategy, to back your answer.
