Understanding Shorting Stocks

Shorting stocks leads to exciting wins and devastating losses. Not really a good formula for a marathoner day trader. What is shorting a stock? The definition of shorting a stock, according to Investopedia.com is: “The sale of a security that is not owned by the seller, or that the seller has borrowed.
