Trades that an investor makes when he/she believes that he/she has information showing that the trade will ultimately result in a profit, whether or not the price is immediately advantageous. An investor may use technical analysis, fundamental analysis, or some other form of analysis when making information-motivated trades. However, one may also make trades based on inside information, which is illegal in most circumstances.
