Short Selling - An Introduction

Note: While this feature is supported by Future Financiers, not all events offer this feature.  Please confirm with the event host before adopting a team strategy.

 

The truism that sound investing strategy is to "buy low, sell high" only works when you expect a stock's value to rise.  What if you expect a stock's value to fall?

 

Short-selling is the same strategy only reversed.  When you short-sell, you are trying to "sell high, buy low".  It allows investors to make a profit in a declining market, however it carries a much higher risk.
