Directional Trading

Directional Trading

A fairly straightforward investment strategy that involves buying securities one believes will rise in price and selling those one believes will decline in price. The success of the strategy involves the ability to accurately predict market movements, and the largest risk is the possibility that the investor may make a mistake. Many long-term investors use a directional trading strategy. See also: Market timer, Market neutral trading strategy.
