So if you are shorting Volkswagen shares there is a good chance that you will be profitable soon. But don’t expect a huge decline. I think that the Volkswagen shares won’t go under the share price 100 Euro unless Volkswagen had cheated in Europe as well. If you own Volkswagen shares then keep it and don’t sell. Buy a few put options of Volkswagen to protect you portfolio. And if you want to make money with Volkswagen shares then start trading in Volkswagen cfds shares.
