    Default "soltar el papel"

    Good Evening,

    Would somebody please help me out with the expression "soltar el papel"?. I am translating articles about the stock market (my first time doing so) for my Uni project and I just cannot get the meaning of this at all.

    Here is the context (two men talking about shares):

    "Hay mucho dinero y poco papel"
    "Cuando llegue hasta aqui (he is looking at the computer screen graph about stocks and shares).......soltamos todo el papel y nos llevamos el dinero".

    Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    hi Lydia, papel is shares in this context.

    There is a lot of money and little to buy.
    When I got to this point.......we sold all our shares and took the money.
    Los hombres son superiores a las mujeres porque Alá les otorgó la primacia sobre ellas. Portanto, dió a los varones el doble de lo que dió a las mujeres. Los maridos que sufrieran desobediencia de sus mujeres pueden castigarlas: abandonarlas en sus lechos, e incluso golpearlas.
    No se legó al hombre mayor calamidad que la mujer."
