The New Sell and Sell Short: How to Take Profits, Cut Losses, and Benefit from Price Declines

Alexander Elder

In The New Sell and Sell Short, Second Edition, Dr. Alexander Elder explains how to exit a stock at the right time and how to initiate a short position to profit from a stock that is showing weakness. Often overlooked, selling properly enables a trader to cut losses and maximize profits. Moreover, short selling in a weak market can generate big profits and should be a part of every trader′s arsenal of tools. The new edition contains numerous examples of short selling stocks from the 2008–2009 bear market, demonstrating very clearly why traders do themselves a disservice by only focusing on the long side. In addition, the new edition contains an extensive study guide to help readers master the material prior to trading.
