Short Hedge

This is a loss-protection/hedging strategy where the trader uses a short on a futures or options contract in order to offset any losses incurred from a bearish movement of a commodity, stock or currency asset that the trader owns. So if a trader owns a stock and the stock price diminishes, he can use a short sale of the options contract on that asset in such a way that exercising the option will pay him more money than he would have lost on the stock trade.
