Abstract:     
The main regulations of short selling in Russian stock markets are presented, and the importance of short selling practices is examined by comparing different asset allocation strategies. A new methodology based on the positive and negative potential for the price (or return) on the next day is presented, and its benefits are shown in an empirical exercise. The empirical analysis considers a list of shares traded on the Russian MICEX and RTS markets, including stocks allowed for short selling in the fourth quarter of 2010. Finally, the superiority of short selling-based strategies is highlighted.
