ice the stock
 v. phr.— «He also noted that the level of selling of Telstra stock has declined in recent weeks. Part of that decline appears to have been brokers soaking up all the stock available for borrowing—a practice known as “icing the stock,” according to hedge funds and other investors. Short sellers have to borrow stock before they can short it, so the practice put a temporary floor under Telstra’s share price.» —“Sure bet for the wealthy punters” by Robert Clow The Australian Oct. 10, 2006.
