Short Selling and Its Restrictions

short selling the market

Short selling has been a popular trading strategy for years, dating back to the early 1900s. There were no restrictions on short selling at one point. Regardless of the status of the stock that is selling, traders were able to short sell. Recently, in order to regulate the market and keep this practice from affecting the market in a negative manner, restrictions are in place.

Overall, short selling is a perfectly legitimate trading strategy. It can yield large profits if you know what you are getting into. While many may have heard of this trading tactic, most do not actually understand exactly what it means to short sell or how to use it to their advantage. By having an understanding as to what exactly short selling is and how it has helped many people make money, you can decide whether or not it is a good opportunity for you.

started a blog stripped down to real

About 15 years ago, my friend Ryan asked me if he should consider dating Jessica – a girl from his church that was quite a bit younger than him. After hearing all the good he had to say about her, I told him to go for it…and he did.

Sadly, I moved away soon after and Ryan (and Jessica) and I lost touch. You know how it goes, life just happens and suddenly a decade and a half flies by… But since then, Ryan and Jessica married (I guess the photo kind of gave that away, huh? ;)), had three kids, and had a whole lot of hills and valleys in their relationship along the way. The refreshing thing about them is, they don’t hide it. They’re genuine. If they’re struggling, they’ll talk about it together and they’ll even share their struggles with others.

Simply put, they’re amazing people, . . . → Read More: Guest Post: I Started a Website…And I’m Freaking Loving It
