The term “trading” actually means exchanging one product or item for another. It's known that in the financial market, when an item is bought for a certain price and that same item is sold at another price, either for profit purpose, then such interaction is termed as trading.
Actually, you can say trading is a means of investing, because once you purchase an item for a lower price and trade it for profit purpose, then the term investment can be used.
In a trading platform, the two main parties that are considered is the “brokers” and the “investors”. The brokers are those who sells there item worth thousands for hundreds, that is, they are always at lost, but the investors gets the items from them at cheaper rate and sells at a better price. Imagine a broker selling an item worth $800 for just $350, and the lucky investor gets the item at that price and sells at $600. Its a huge gain.
Nowadays, trading is commonly done online, in other words, the “Online trading business”. Its a business, by which the individual investors and traders prefare to trade online. Hope you've been able to understand the term “trading”.
