Of course, some people will make money from it, but as a general rule of thumb, you shouldn't. Unless you are a professional like you mentioned.

Major risk of short selling is the fear of infinite losses. While the maximum loss for a long investor is the amount invested in a security, the maximum loss for a short seller is theoretically infinite, since there is no upper limit to a stock’s price appreciation. This risk is compounded by the fact that during a short squeeze or buy-in, the short seller may be forced to cover the short position at an artificially high price that may only be temporary in nature.
Good explanation, actually there is another type of FOMO, for example I didn't short BCN in time and I lost my 3/4 money on that, it's ok cuz the money is very little, but everybody need to know the right time for short or long, which is impossible, so there must be losing traders who feeds winning traders always.

The risk of shorting is greater. If you are a newbie and want to go short to get more coins, the failure rate will be higher in the big case, unless you are very lucky.
I think it is better not to be short.

It's called gambling my friend, we all know it's a risk but it's a high risk/ high reward risk. Cheesy

Operation There's no compelling reason to do it for me additionally on the grounds that before the cost of the coins here turn out to be extremely high yet it's require investment so I say you just need to purchase/offer in that time even no edge you can without much of a stretch snap you telephone to sell.I believe there's no compelling reason to edge your coins in light of the fact that the cost is extremely unpredictable so for me ig depends of the circumstance of the coins like if the coins remain just in the cost of 0.004 btc to 0.0048 btc as it were.

Margin trading is for people that knows what they are doing; if you are not an expert and can't have full control of your emotions don't go into Margin trading; shorting is a good way to make money during bear market

Shouldn't shorting be for a more stable market? The crytocurrency industry is widely known for its volatility and I wouldn't recommend shorting for anyone. It is quite a risky thing to do, and don't venture into except you are looking towards losing your funds or you are certain that you fully have mastered your way round it.

If you dont understand marginal trading, check out my Medium Post: Understanding Marginal Trading.


I see a lot of people are interested in shorting, however I would advise against it. The market is acting irrational, and people are investing in obvious "shit coins". Shorting a coin that you think is over evaluated is not a good idea, because it can continue to be over evaluated, tons of people are investing in awful coins that have NO utility. So even if you are right, you are playing a dangerous game and when you factor in risk management it likely isn't a good idea. Thoughts?

Oh, great advice, except that someone shorting this week would have made a huge profit, since everything is down. I would advise to understand and use shorting instruments.

Just because something is profitable doesnt mean the right decision was made. This is a hard concept to learn because people are super results oriented. You can make a bad investment or a bad trade and make money. However, in the long term it's not the best play. Example: You could have invested in verge early on and make a ton of money, however the coin/token itself was shit. Luck plays a role in investing sometimes. Shorting is okay if you know the risks and know what your doing, but it should be done by professionals.

Shorting is risky and dangerous but holding your coins on a bearish market is even more risky. In fact the whole crypto investing is risky.. Shorting your coins help you to save the value of your coins if you are doing it smart.

I think that spot is more suitable for investors, and leverage is too risky, which may cause investors to go bankrupt in an instant, so this is why I don't choose leverage trading. I hope that novices will not participate in leveraged trading.
