Trading Terms

This page has an in-depth list of the most popular trading terms. Have you ever listened to a podcast or read an article about trading and wondered why we use the words we do? Don’t worry. You’re not alone, stock market language can be difficult. Sometimes, it feels like the language people use is from a completely different country. But don’t worry. There’s no shame in not knowing what certain words or phrases mean.

Everybody’s been new to trading at some point. As you can probably tell, the stock market is rife with unique terms and industry-specific phrases. Learning these terms can go a long way in helping you understand what people are talking about. These words can also help in general market analysis and individual stock analysis. Before you dive headfirst into trading stocks, make sure you familiarize yourself and learn the language of the stock market. We’ve collected some terms here to help you familiarize yourself, and we’re constantly adding new ones to this list. Take our trading courses if you need help getting started.

If you’ve looked for trading education elsewhere then you’ll notice that it can be very costly.

We are opposed to charging ridiculous amounts to access experience and quality information. 

That being said, our website is a great resource for traders or investors of all levels to learn about day trading stocks, futures, and options. Swing trading too! 

On our site, you will find thousands of dollars worth of free online trading courses, tutorials, and reviews.

We put all of the tools available to traders to the test and give you first-hand experience in stock trading you won’t find elsewhere.

Our content is packed with the essential knowledge that’s needed to help you to become a successful trader.

It’s important to treat day trading stocks, options, futures, and swing trading like you would with getting a professional degree, a new trade, or starting any new career.

Invest the proper time into your Trading Education and don’t try to run before you learn to crawl. Trading stocks is not a get-rich-quick scheme. It’s not gambling either, though there are people who treat it this way. Don’t be that person!
