Short selling: Short selling (also referred to shorting or going short) is the practice of selling financial instruments which are not already owned. It typically involves instruments traded in public securities, futures or currency markets, due to the liquidity and real-time pricing in such markets and because the instruments defined within each class are fungible. The investor or trader profits from a fall in the price of the asset, or makes a loss if its price rises, on a subsequent repurchase. In the securities markets, the seller generally must borrow the securities in order to effect delivery in the short sale.
