Position trader

Position Trader

An investor who practices buying and holding. That is, position trading occurs when a trader buys a security and does not sell it until it is at or near maturity. If the security is a stock or otherwise does not have a maturity date, the position trader holds it indefinitely. The term "position trading" is most common in commodities, where it refers to a trader that does not sell a commodity contract until the delivery date is close (usually for several months). See also: Value investor.

position trader

A security trader who holds a position overnight, and, in some cases, for even longer periods. Position traders differ from day traders and scalpers who operate within shorter time frames.
