  1. Just curious, when you guys discuss various topics of trading in this section, do you mean day trading only?

    I been trading for 5+ years now but on monthly timeframe and got into options this year, again trading on monthly. Is there a specifc name for these type of traders?

    Also in most big investment banks, when they say traders do they mean day traders?

  2. Just one view:

    day trader --- doesn't hold thru eod
    swing trader --- usually a few days
    position trader --- longer up to your sort of timeframes

    and many variations on the theme (scalpers, daily swing etc etc).

    Vs investor who doesn't have an exit plan on entry.
  3. what about a kiwi trader? :D

    j/k! thanks for the explanation!
  4. All kinds of trading. Any time frame.
