I have doubts regarding short selling hoping someone here could answer my question.
Does shorting actually drive down market prices?
I understand shorting means borrowing shares from another investor and selling it. But at the end of the day they have to cover the shorts within a certain fixed time frame which will cause a price influx again. So what i thought was, shorting does not rly drive prices down in a longer term perspective.
Correct me if i am wrong.
