Is it possible to short a stock you hold?
EG: Im a long term holder, but in this crazy (volatile) market thinking about shorting.
Essentially you sell a and re-buy a share at a lower price to short, correct? So if you hold the share long - is it different/possible selling the "borrowed" shares than the ones I am holding?
So rather than actualising a loss and re-buying shares at lower cost basis, making profit from the short and keeping the shares with the higher cost basis
Am I making any sense?
