speculazione al ribasso


Explanation:
in ambito borsistico e' una specie di speculazione al ribasso.

Short Selling, in finance and commerce, form of speculation based on anticipation of a decline in the prices of securities and commodities. Short selling occurs most frequently in connection with the sale of securities on stock markets. In this type of transaction, a seller undertakes to deliver to a purchaser a number of shares of a stock at the price prevailing at the time of sale. To effect the transaction, the seller, who does not actually possess the shares, borrows them from a broker, who receives a commission for services rendered. Subsequently, the seller "covers" by buying shares and delivering them to the broker. If the seller is able to buy at a lower price than he or she received, a profit is realized; conversely, if the seller finds it necessary to cover at a higher price, a loss is sustained. The process of short selling on the commodity markets is similar.
