All About Short Selling reveals what you need to excel in this exciting form of trading—without making the classic “beginner’s” mistakes. An expert in the field, Tom Taulli provides a comprehensive game plan for playing—and winning—the short-selling game.

Avoiding complicated theories and overly technical explanations, All About Short Selling focuses only on what you need to know, including:

  • The benefits of short selling—from decreased overall portfolio risk to increased returns in tough markets
  • Tips for analyzing balance sheets, income statements, and cash-flow statements
  • Techniques for managing and evaluating a portfolio that includes shorted investments
