What does it mean to long a stock?
Short-selling stock means you borrow the stock, sell it immediately, wait till it drops in price, buy it back, return it and keep the profit. This is how you make money on a declining issue. Long-selling stock requires that you buy the stock, hold it till it increases in price and sell it then, keeping the profit. It's what you do if you think the stock's fortunes will improve. Long-selling has limited risk--you can only lose all the money you put into it--and potentially unlimited reward. Short-selling has limited reward--the best you can hope for is for the company you shorted to go out of business, locking in your profit as all the money you received from the sale of the stock--and potentially unlimited risk.

How do you profit from put options?
There are three reasons to buy a put option: to lock in downside profits: if you paid $10 for the stock and it's now $20, you could buy a put at $18. If the stock falls past $18, the put exercises and you keep most of your gain. in the hedging strategies "straddle" and "strangle." In those you buy both a put and a call. and to protect yourself against loss: you buy the put at the price you paid for the stock, or at a level you're comfortable with falling to. You can profit from selling puts in two ways. The simplest is to sell puts that expire worthless, so you keep the premium. The other is in a buy and hold strategy: you buy slightly out-of-the-money puts on stocks that change price in a predictable fashion. You then keep the stock until it goes up in price before selling it. This, however, takes months and if you're into churning stock it will never work for you.

How do you sell stocks short?
Short selling consists of borrowing someone else's stock and selling them. You would do this since you believe that thestock will drop in price, which will allow you to buy it back at a cheaper price. It is the same concept as "buy low, sell high" but in reverse order. You will need a margin account with a brokerage firm to do this. A margin account is a brokerage account that allows you to borrow money or stock for the purpose of investing. When your brokerage firm receives your sho sell order, it will first check to see if there is another client in their firm that is holding the stock you wish to short sell in their margin account. You are not allowed to borrow the stock from an account that isn't a margin account. If the shares are available, you will be able to sell it. Short selling has a special rule called he "downtick rule". This means that your order will not execute if the last trade price on the stock was lower than the previous trade price. In other words... if the stock you wish to short sell last traded at $10 and the trade before that was at $11, your trade order will not execute until the stock "ticks" up in price. This rule was implemented to prevent short sale orders from driving down the prices of the stock during volitile and frenzied tradiing sessions. Sometimes, you may be forced to buy back the stock before you wish. This will happen because the person from whom you borrowed the stock (the identity of which you will never know) may decide to sell their shares and your brokerage firm cannot find someone else from whom you can borrow shares. This is an important risk to keep in mind when short sellling... you may be forced to buy the shares back even though you may not want to. In order for a stock to be "short-saleable", it has to be considered "marginable". there are federal rules on what makes a marginable stock, but many brokerage firms implement margin rules that are more stringent than the feds. Thus, a stock that is considered marginable in one brokerage firm, may not be marginable at another.
