Net Long

Net Long

A situation in which an investor, fund, or portfolio has more long positions than short positions. That is, an investor has a net long position if he/she has bought more securities than he/she has sold or short-sold. This means that the investor would benefit if prices increased so that he/she could then close out his/her long positions and make a profit. If the positions decline in value, the investor will lose money. See also: Net short.
