Speculation in Credit: Shortening Credit Investors can short a reference entity’s credit by buying a CDs without having an underlying exposure to protect.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
