What is short selling ?

Short selling is the practice of selling an asset that you don’t actually own, in the hope that the price will decline and you can buy it back in the future at a lower level. You can then keep the difference between the price at which you sold the assets and the lower price you paid to buy them back.

"Short selling is also known as going short or shorting."
