We live in uncertain times. After six-plus years, the bull market is limping along, set to collapse under its own weight.
But before it does, you’d be wise to take some precautions — set yourself up to profit, even.
One way to do that is through the time-honored practice of shorting.
And that’s exactly what I’m going to show you how to do.
Before we get to that, though, I want to talk about something else: risk.
The truth is, a lot of people are scared away from shorting because of the risk. And that’s understandable. There is a certain amount of nuance that comes with shorting stocks. It takes confidence, patience, and resolve. The risk is real and definite.
But as you know, investing any money at all in any asset — be it stocks, commodities, or bonds — carries risk. There is no such thing as a risk-free investment.
With shorting, especially using options, the oft-mentioned risk is your losses can theoretically be “infinite.”
That is, theoretically, the market could keep going higher and higher and higher, thus exacerbating your loss.
