Trading refers to buying and selling securities such as stocks, bonds, commodities, currencies, and other financial instruments.
Individuals or institutions usually perform this activity on behalf of clients to generate profits from price changes in the market.
Trading can be done in various forms, including day trading, swing trading, scalping, and position trading. Day trading involves making multiple trades in a single day to profit from short-term price movements.
Swing trading involves holding a position for a few days to a few weeks, taking advantage of medium-term price changes.
Scalping is a fast-paced style of trading where traders take advantage of small price movements by making multiple trades in a short period.
Position trading involves holding a position for a more extended period, often several months or years, in anticipation of longer-term price movements.
