The truism that sound investing strategy is to "buy low, sell high" only works when you expect a stock's value to rise. What if you expect a stock's value to fall?
Short-selling is the same strategy only reversed. When you short-sell, you are trying to "sell high, buy low". It allows investors to make a profit in a declining market, however it carries a much higher risk.
