I am a long term growth investor. I buy stock for dividend and hold for long time of 3+ years. To deviate a bit and with BREXIT done, I was thinking of another method where I can short the stock on long term basis and make profit. If I have to do such a method then how can it be done?
Yeah, why not?
Many hedge fund managers use shorting for benefiting from price margin.
Best example for this is housing recession in US.
A movie named The big short is also released for same. Would suggest you to watch that movie to get a good view on how you can gain from shorting in long term.
Movie is all about 4 denizens in the world of high-finance predict the credit and housing bubble collapse of the mid-2000s, and decide to take on the big banks for their greed and lack of foresight.
In 2005, eccentric hedge fund manager Michael Burry discovers that the U.S. housing market is extremely unstable, being based on high risk subprime loans.
Must watch it.
Investing on Shorting in Indian stocks is not an option as of now, well if you can create a new portfolio of commodities, then yes you can take positional trades from 3 months to 1 year time period to gain in shorting commodities.
