USE SHORT–SELLING TO OPTIMIZE THE PERFORMANCE OF YOUR PORTFOLIO
Short–selling is often vilified as the "dark side" of the market; however, bestselling authors Gil Morales and Chris Kacher reveal the positive side and tremendous profit potential of selling stocks short. Short–Selling with the O′Neil Disciples is filled with compelling case studies that illustrate the precise mechanics of shorting, and offers a proven methodology for tapping into the power of the life–cycle paradigm of stocks as it relates to short–selling.
Stocks can have more than one life cycle, providing opportunities on both the long and short sides depending on where they are within the virtuous cycle of creation and destruction. Short–Selling with the O′Neil Disciples lays out the rules, tactics, and market signals necessary to profit on the often rapid downside movement of stocks and other related securities. At the same time, this vital resource shows how to develop the skills for understanding when to sell long positions in leading stocks that have finally reached the end of their upside life cycle.
