Getting the Best Rates on Home Loans Gold as a Hedge

Going Long or Short-Selling

Regarding short-selling, you're fighting the trend of the market, which is, in the long run, up. When you buy a stock that you're confident is greatly undervalued, you should feel content to wait as long as it takes for the dividends to start rolling in (provided you have a sufficiently long investment horizon). When you're on the short side, however, you will eventually need to buy the shares back, at whatever the market price happens to be; and while you wait and wait for the speculative bubble to burst, the rest of the market will probably continue on its upward trajectory.
