An Introduction to Short Selling
The simplest explanation of short selling is that it is opposite to going long. When going long you buy a financial instrument like stock or currency pair, wait for appreciation in price and then sell the instrument for a profit. In short selling you sell the instrument first, wait for a depreciation of price and then buy the instrument to make a profit. The strategy is a little more complex as it requires burrowing of the instrument before you can sell it. The burrowing is usually done from a broker who charges an interest margin for it.
Many markets and nations have restrictions on short-selling. Many believe that unregulated short selling can cause adverse effects on market. The speculation is a collective effort of short sellers can create a negative sentiment in market and can cause price decrease. Shorting can create adverse effects when there is a market crisis or when followed by spreading false rumors and when traders are doing naked short selling - selling the instrument without actually burrowing that.
