Short sell is a financial term that refers to selling in advance. In forex trading, It’s a market position where the trader has sold a currency that is not owned by him. It helps investors to take profit from any news, speculation, or analysis by selling a currency in advance to buy it back at lower prices.

The difference between the selling price and buying price is considered as profit or loss for a trader, depending on the closing price.
