What are the different types of trading

Two basic types of trading are-

  • Intraday: When you buy and sell the share on the same day, then it is called intraday trading. Here the shares are not purchased for investing, but to get profits by harnessing the movement in the market.

  • Delivery: When you buy a share and hold it for more than one day, then it is called delivery. It doesn‚Äôt matter whether you sell it tomorrow, after 1 week, 6 months or 5 years. If you hold the stock for more than one day, then it is called delivery.

Few other types are swing trading, range trading, momentum trading, breakout trading, reversal trading etc.
