Stock Trading

What is Stock Trading?

Stock trading usually refers to actions associated with stock traders who frequently buy and sell stocks to capitalize on daily price fluctuations.

Stock trading can also be classified as the following:

  • Active trading is buying and selling securities based on short-term movements to profit from the price movements on a short-term stock chart.
  • Day trading is speculation in securities, specifically buying and selling financial instruments within the same trading day, with all positions closed before the market closes for the trading day.
