Shares represent the documented right that the owner of a share has a proportional part of the ownership of a share company. Shares can be traded at one or several stock exchanges or even outside stock exchanges.
The interested party can purchase shares by specifying a price and a number of shares. This puts them in what is known as a long position. They expect the share value to increase so that they can sell the share for a higher price at a later point in time.
If the interested party does not expect the value of a share to rise or remain constant, they have the opportunity to bet on a falling price. They achieve this by a so-called short sell of the share concerned. That is to say, this is nothing other than the fact that they will sell the share for a certain price. They open a short position. The broker lends the shares to be sold to the seller and the latter sells this share and obtains cash in return. The seller can sell the share more cheaply at a later time and then return it to the broker.
In both cases, the share was bought for a particular price and sold at a higher price. The only difference is the time of the trading activities.
Apart from the normal share trading fees, no additional fees are incurred with short selling. But it is possible that the party lending the shares may normally demand a small lending fee. This may be the case, e.g. before the announcement of any dividend payment.
It goes without saying that we are seeking to expand the range on offer constantly. However, it is possible that not all the shares/stocks are available because of certain rules at individual stock exchanges. Please use our product search facility to check, whether the share you want is tradable .
Please note that for dividend payments, the short seller is called on to pay the dividend. In return, the share price is subject to a dividend payout, from which the short seller benefits.
