Short Selling is a way for individual traders to take advantage of declining market prices to produce profitable trades.
In Malaysia we have the futures market where traders can short sell the FBMKLCI Index which is known as the FKLI (Futures Kuala Lumpur Index) and also the FCPO (Futures Crude Palm Oil).
If you think the FBMKLCI is going to go down in the coming days, you can Short Sell the FKLI market to profit from the drop in price.
If you think the FCPO is going to go up in the coming days, you can Buy Long the FCPO market to profit from the increase in price.
