Most of investment study and research time is spent looking for winning buy ideas. That's fine if overall market is consistently positive and strong. But market has had periods where it has spent as much time in a bear market as in a bull market. There are two sides to everything- except stock market! In stock market there is only one side, and it isn't bull side OR bear side, but RIGHT side.

reason is quite simple. In a bull market, most stocks go up. In a bear market, almost everything will go down, sooner or later. key is to recognize type of market you are in, according to trend and condition of general market. If you spot a bear market developing, selling short can be a profitable endeavor.

Trading positions are usually held a few days to a couple of weeks. idea is to find stocks about to make big swings in price, buy them before big price move, and sell them shortly after.

Rather than targeting 20% to 25% profits for most of your stocks, profit goal is 10%, or even just 5% in tougher markets. Those might not look like big gains, but due to fast nature of strategy, they begin to add up quickly.

Smaller gains can only produce growth in your portfolio if losses are kept small. Rather than normal 7% to 8% stop loss, sell quicker at a maximum of 2% to 3%. This will keep you at a 3-to-1 profit-to-loss ratio, a good portfolio management strategy.

highlight of this strategy is that it restricts losses while optimizing profits. Rather than targeting 20% to 25% profits for most of your stocks, profit goal is 10%, or even between just 5%-7% in tougher and choppy market conditions. stop-loss is limited to maximum of 2%-3% which gives you great odds on each trade by 1:2, 1:3 which is critical for money management strategy.

profit on trades may be smaller but downside will be limited and over period these small profits can add up to consistent stronger returns irrespective of direction of market.

A short sale is simply opposite of buying first and selling later. You sell first and buy back later, hopefully at a lower price, in which case you will have made a profit.

mechanics of short selling are relatively simple. If you believe price of ABC Company's stock is headed lower, all you do is give your stockbroker an order to sell short of ABC stock futures.
