Short Selling - Abuzar Qazi - 05-01-2010

What does the short selling mean? Please clarify

- Star - 05-04-2010

There are two terms of the stock market.

Blank sale

“Blank Sale” means “a sale by a party that does not own shares or the sale does
not constitute a sale with pre-existing interest or is a sale by a party that has not
entered into a contractual borrowing arrangement to meet delivery requirements”.

Short sale

"Short Sale" means a sale by a Member, on his Proprietary Account or on Client’s
Account, not owning securities at the time of sale or the sale without constituting
a Pre-Existing Interest but is a sale on Proprietary Account or Client’s Account
entered into on the basis of Prior Contractual Borrowing Arrangement to meet
delivery requirements on the settlement date.

The selling of a security that the seller does not own, or any sale that is completed by the delivery of a security borrowed by the seller. Short sellers assume that they will be able to buy the stock at a lower amount than the price at which they sold short.
