 Stock trader

Stocks and BondsA Stock Trader or a Stock Investor is a financial markets professional or firm, who buys and sells financial instruments, such as stocks and bonds. The individuals or firms trading in a principal capacity sometimes call themselves stock traders or simply traders. Many people across the world can call themselves stock traders or part-time stock traders, despite of having another profession in parallel with their regular trading activities in the financial markets. When a stock trader has clients, and acts as a money manager or adviser with the intention of adding value to his clients finances, he is also called a financial adviser or manager. In this case, the financial manager could be an independent professional or a large bank corporation employee. This may include managers dealing with investment funds, hedge funds, mutual funds, and pension funds, or other professionals in equity investment and fund management. A very active stock trader who holds positions for a very short time and makes several trades each day is a day trader. Other broad or specific designations for different kinds of stock traders include the terms: speculator, hedger, arbitrageur and market maker.
