    Default Short selling is an obvious way of benefiting from market corrections.

    Short selling is an obvious way of benefiting from market corrections.

    With so many inverse ETF's, which short sell, your risks are much
    lower than shorting a stock only----or a few stocks. You can loose only
    the money invested in the ETF's. If you short sell a stock and it goes up,
    you can loose your shirt.

    Add the fact that you make money faster in down markets than
    in up markets.

    In down markets obviously you can make money by
    selling stocks, not buying stocks.

    See what Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, just did: he sold AAPL shares
    for 43 $ millions. You do not get married to shares !

    We speak here probably about one of the best companies there is.

    When stocks fall money runs to the safety of bonds. That's why you own both.

    Things are actually more complicated. There is the intermarket analysis.
    Stockcharts.com provides here a short description for three classes of assets:
    stocks, bonds, and commodities.

    Other studies involve also the currencies.

    I have a friend who's been shorting this market. Needless to say, he's been taking it in the shorts. I tried to tell him ...
