Sell - when you have a position opened and you hav to sell what you have bought

short - when you are borrowing stocks with the position you are about to open. for shorts the stock needs to be shortable and your account needs to be a margin account (which is not a problem in your test account)

Ahmer,

This button always shows "SHRT", you can use the same button for closing your open long position or when you are not in a trade you can use this button to open a short position (selling  borrowed stocks). This button basically execute a sell order, sell your own stocks or borrowed stocks.

Best of luck.
