In many cases, short selling is the technique that tips the scale. While individual investors often hear such phrases as going short, short interest, and short squeeze, there is little explanation in the financial media about these concepts. The perception is that short-selling is too risky for individual investors. In fact, most have assumed that only professionals like George Soros and Manuel Ascensio, can - or even should - participate in short selling. Today's investors, though, are not only smarter, but willing to take chances that could result in higher returns

All about short selling­­today's most market-tested technique for grabbing profits in falling markets

As individual investors are forced to become increasingly savvy in today's turbulent markets, more and more are investigating short selling­­the practice, once reserved for the pros, of selling stock you don't own in hopes of buying it back later at a lower price. The Streetsmart Guide to Short Selling explains how any investor can add this valuable weapon to his or her arsenal of daily market strategies, and increase the capabilities for profiting in all markets. The first book to explain short-selling strategies in terms that individual investors can understand, this latest addition to the popular Streetsmart series covers:

Succinct discussion of short selling stocks. Charts are very good. I enjoyed the book even though I have never shorted. Mastering this content should give a person the tools required to short without a lot of extra verbage.

O.K!

Interesting read. I found the information on point for what I was researching. There are some distracting typos that made me reduce to a four star rating.

With the stock market plunging in 2008 and 2009, there has been a lot of talk about short selling. Most investors are only familiar with buying stocks long-term. This book gives a great introduction to short selling, but I will warn readers that this is just an introduction. The author discusses topics such as the uptick rule, short squeeze, short interest, and buy-ins. If you do not understand these terms, then you will benefit from this book.

I personally do not short stocks, but I wanted to learn about it to be more educated. The problem that I have with going short versus going long is that when I find an undervalued stock, and I buy it long with cash, I have the luxury of time. Even if the stock drops more than 50%, I can wait as long as I wish. With shorting, when the stock goes up a lot, an investor might get a margin call and be forced to cover even if in the end he or she is right. As far as educating readers on shorting, this book is excellent.

Proofreading is critical, especially in a text where people will be risking money in the market. There are some very basic errors even before the book gets to the more difficult stuff:
Page 36:
"2500 shares of ABC at $10 = $5000
50 shares of XYZ at $10 = 2500"
(Obviously these are both wrong.)

Page 47:
"You short 100 shares of Great Drop at $100 per share. The stock hits $110...the next day you get a confirmation from your brokerage firm. It says you covered the stock at $11 and sustained a $100 loss."
By my calculations, if you bought 100 at $100 ($10,000 total) and covered the same 100 at $11 you would have an $8,900 GAIN ($10,000 - $1,100 = $8,900).
There are, however, many good ideas for targeting a potential short: insider trading, proxy information details, overvaluations, etc, as well as the risks involved: buy-in, short squeeze, no-borrow, IRS regulations, etc. If the text is reprinted and the errors fixed, it would be a good read...

With the problems in the markets -- which seem to just continue -- this book provides a way to make money. I always hear about short selling, such as on CNBC and the Wall Street Journal, but never hear any explanations. This book shows how to get started and how to deal with the pitfalls, such as the short squeeze. This is a very good book and highly recommended.
