Selling Short

A situation where an asset has been sold with the intent of buying back the position at a lower price to make a profit. Another name for this is short selling. Selling short works by borrowing the asset from the dealer and selling this asset at a higher price, then waiting for the price of the asset to drop after which the trader buys it back at a lower price, returns the asset to the dealer and profits from the price difference.
