Is there a way to show $$\lim\limits_{x \to -\infty}xT_{\nu}(x)=0$$ where $T_{\nu}(x)$ is the CDF of Student's t distribution? Repetitive application of L'Hospital's rule to the fraction $\frac{x}{1/T_{\nu}(x)}$ does not work.


Let me give you a hint.

While x/(1/F(x)) doesn't work, does F(x)/(1/x) work?
