I have spoken a little bit with my discount broker and he said that selling short is safer than using options so I guess sine I am a new investor I may delay trading options until I have more experience. However, I am interested in selling short but havent read much about it so I am gonna read about it more and maybe use that strategy soon. What do you think about selling short? How risky is it? What are the odds in being successful? Are options more or less risky than selling short?

Sincerely,
SorrySam
