Short Selling: An evidence-based introduction

Book Description

What is short-selling? And is it as profitable - or as dangerous - as it can seem? In this highly focused eBook, financial expert and author James Clunie reveals everything you need to know about the art of short-selling without wasting your time. Cutting to the quick, it lays bare: - all major short-selling techniques: quantitative, forensic accounting, thematic investing, fair value analysis, balance sheet weakness/financial distress, and exploiting market ecology - the advantages and disadvantages of each short-selling approach, and their rates of success and failure - where short-sellers get their information from - how short-sellers try to practise risk management and much more! With a low-growth atmosphere and markets still nervous in the wake of recent financial crises, there has never been a better time to get on top of what it means to be a successful short-seller. Short Selling by James Clunie is the most time and cost-effective way to start getting ahead of other traders and investors now.
