Position Trading

The act or practice of 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 trader holds it indefinitely. The term "position trading" is most common in commodities, where it refers to a trader who does not sell a commodity contract until the delivery date is close (usually for several months).
