Trading Dollars(redirected from Trades Dollars)
Informal; a term for a company breaking even on an investment. For example, an oil company may spend $1 million placing an oil pump on an unproven reserve and drill only $1 million worth of oil. In this situation, the company trades $1 million in investment for an equal number of dollars from the oil, hence the term.
