What does going “long” and “short” mean?

Last Updated: Aug 11, 2019 10:17AM UTC
Going “long” is when a trader buys an asset expecting its value to rise. This is also called opening a long position. Going “short” or opening a short position, is when a trader sells an asset, expecting its price to decline, so it can be bought back in the future at a lower price.
