I know a lot about the stock market but I can't figure this question out. How do shorting stocks help the market? I mean doesn't it just reduce confidence and more shorts out there the more you'll know the stock is gonna go down so people either sell and/or short. Any explanation would be really appreciated.

I only can think that it may help people who can find anyone who felt the stock was going up in a crash market.

Short selling is a marginable transaction and that means that you must open a margin account to sell short. This is the same account you would use if you want to use your stocks as collateral margin to trade in the markets. When you open a margin account, you must sign an agreement with your broker and this agreement says you will maintain a cash margin or offer your stocks as margin.
