What are long/short hedge funds?
Long/short hedge funds are a type of hedge fund that takes both long and short positions in securities. Long positions are bets that the price of an asset will rise, while short positions are bets that the price of an asset will fall. By taking both long and short positions, long/short hedge funds can reduce their overall risk and generate returns in both rising and falling markets.
Long/short hedge funds typically use a variety of factors to identify undervalued and overvalued assets, including fundamental analysis, technical analysis, and quantitative analysis. Once an asset has been identified as undervalued or overvalued, the fund will take a long or short position accordingly.
