What is Short

The term “shorting” is frequently used to describe short-selling. Simply explained, this is an investment technique in which the investor gains when they anticipate a decline in the value of an asset.

This strategy’s fundamental process is borrowing an asset first, then selling it at the going rate. You borrow these assets and later buy them back from the lender. The prices of these assets decrease as is expected when you have to buy them back. Theoretically, you would have paid less for the assets than you did for them when you purchased them.
