Step By Step Day Trading Guide To Short Selling Strategy ( Ameritrade, Thinkorswim )

In this video, I have discussed step by step short selling strategy from scanning to exiting a stock. This video is not recorded for training or educational purposes. Please enjoy the video!


  1. Great video really taught me more or less the basics . Very organized and another thing could you please send me the spreadsheet at it would help me a lot

  2. What kind of an account to you have to have to be able to sell short? Do you have a video on what you need to qualify to sell short?

  3. Hi, I hope that spread sheet is still available? Is it okay if you send a copy to slmfinancialny @ gmail.. Also, how do you know which stocks to choose from? I am a beginner and understand what short selliing is. But how do I know which stock to choose/watch?

  4. be careful when short selling overnight and during the first 30 minutes when the market opens, it's a jungle, the price can whip up and down fast. As for shorting overnight: The price can jump in after hours. The stock market is technically open 4/6am to 8pm. If you're shorting a stock at say $10 and bought 1,000 shares, and overnight great news came out and the stock jumps to $11 you're down $1,000 when you wake up. obviously the same can happen when going long. However stocks usually trade upward long term, unless the company isn't doing well or bad news came out/bad earnings report. I only DT & short that's my thing. It took me a year to leave my job and make money 4 out of 5 days a week, but that's not before I lost 30% of my account in the beginning. So if I was giving advice to myself in the past, I would say specialize specifically in just short or just long. Never short overnight unless you're willing to stomach a possible roller-coaster. And decide to specialize in day trading, 2 day, weekly, or monthly. and don't give up, keep trying different strategies. I'm no millionaire yet, so I'm not preaching, but I do pretty well. Take it or leave it. Don't listen to what they say about shorting being hard, just if you're going to do it master it, after learning all of the fundamentals of the market. Hope it helped.
