What does “short sale” mean?

In the business world, a Short Sale is where an investor sells borrowed securities, expecting prices to decline, and is required to return an equal number of shares at some future date.

The payoff to selling short is the opposite of a long position. A short seller will make money if the stock goes down in price, while a long position makes money when the stock goes up.

The profit that the investor receives is equal to the value of the sold borrowed shares less the cost of repurchasing the borrowed shares.
