How Can You Sell Something You Don’t Own?

“Shorting” or “going short” are popular terms in trading, but shorting requires an explanation to be understood properly.

To understand going short, you must first understand what it means to go long.

5 Reasons Why Learning To Trade Will Be Your…

I first got involved in trading during the summer of 2013. I was convinced I didn’t want to spend the rest of my life in an office working for someone else’s dream, but hadn’t yet figured out how I’d make my own way. Throughout most of my teenage years I was an avid poker player, but realised I didn’t have the patience to spend long hours alone playing online tables to build up a bank roll. This is when I first got introduced to trading by a chance ad online – it changed my life so significantly that I moved from a path in Chemical Engineering to landing one of the most prestigious jobs in investment banking, to starting my own trading business – all by the age of 23.
