What Is Short Position?
When used in trading, the term “short” refers to a position that profits when the price of an asset decreases.
Typically used in conjunction with “selling” or “going short” or “taking a short position”.
For instance, if you sell euros and buy US dollars, you are short EUR/USD.
Going short is the inverse of going long, which implies taking a position that profits if the price of an asset rises.
Short selling is the most well-known method of shorting.
Short-selling is a strategy in which a trader borrows an asset from a broker and then sells it on the market. Typically, the broker is responsible for borrowing and selling the asset.
