What is a 'Short' (or 'Short Position')
A short position is a directional trading or investment strategy where the investor sells assets in the open market. The expectation of the investor is that the price of the stock will decrease over time, at which point he will purchase the assets.
What is a 'Long' (or 'Long Position')
A long position is the buying of an asset, with the expectation that the asset will rise in value. In the context of options, long is the buying of an option contract.
An investor that expects an asset’s price to fall will go long on a put option, and an investor that hopes to benefit from an upward price movement will be long a call option.
What is 'Leverage'
Leverage is a trading strategy of using borrowed money to increase the potential return on investment. The ratio shows the split of investors funds and the borrowed money. Thus, in the example above, LVG 1:3 shows that the ratio of personal funds to borrowed money.
