Comment on Basics on Options Shorting/Writing

Yes, its like normal trading where you sell first and buy later. However when you sell first, you’ve to make sure you buy it back on the same day. When you sell you have to “give” delivery of stock not “take” delivery.

Apart from trading in Equity markets, you can also trade in the Futures & Options (F&O) segment. If you sell Stock in the Futures market you can carry forward such positions (i.e you need not buy them back the same day). To get a thorough understanding of how the Futures market work, do go through this module on Zerodha Varsity: http://zerodha.com/varsity/module/futures-trading/
