Definitions of GOING SHORT
Sort: Oldest first
When a trader believes the price of a share, bond, or commodity will lower in the near future, that trader can sell a share, bond, or commodity before actually buying it. On the date of its delivery to the buyer the trader will profit or loose based on the price the trader pays for the item to cover what was sold. See also going long.
