Short position

• Refers to several concepts. It can refer to market directional positions. For example, the sale of a call or the purchase of a put are bearish in nature. These trades have a negative market bias. Short position can also refer to the actual short sale of a derivative. Here, a short sale of a put is viewed as bullish or market directional positive but categorized by the short sale event.

• Occurs when a person sells stocks he or she does not yet own. Shares must be borrowed, before the sale, to make good delivery to the buyer. Eventually, the shares must be bought to close out the transaction. This technique is used when an investor believes the stock price will go down.
