What is long short strategy?
A long short strategy involves going long (buying) some stocks and shorting (selling short) others.
The strategy is often employed by long-short funds with the goal of generating returns in both bullish and bearish markets.
A long short strategy is an investment strategy where a hedge fund buys stocks expected to appreciate in value and short sells stocks expected to decrease in value. This allows the fund to hedge its exposure to market downside risk.
