Which kind of trader are you?
The investment world generally includes two different types of traders – retail traders and institutional traders. Retail traders usually trade smaller amounts, and not in a professional capacity, whilst institutional traders tend to invest larger quantities of money, often also for other people. An example of a retail trader is an individual that does not earn his or her living from investing, whilst an institutional trader generally has trading or investment as their core business.
You can learn more about other trader types in the examples below.
�Types of traders
What’s a day trader?
Day traders are traders who execute intraday strategies to profit from price changes for a given asset. They employ a wide variety of techniques in order to capitalize on market inefficiencies and generally classified as individuals who trade more than 4 times in a 5-day period. This means that they often close out all positions prior to the end of the trading day in order to avoid holding overnight positions.
What’s a money trader?
Money traders are generally individuals who specialize in investments in the currency markets. These are also often called forex, FX or foreign exchange traders. The traders would generally not trade stocks or indices, but rather focus purely on investments in the currency markets.
What’s a professional trader?
A professional trader generally earns his or her living from investing in the financial markets. This means he or she makes a higher volume of trades than a retail trader, as well as larger investment sizes.
What’s an investor?
An investor is any individual that is active in the financial markets with the aim of profitably investing his/her money, either for himself/herself or for other people such as their clients. Investors generally have a longer time horizon than traders, and are more interested in longer term macro trends than short term opportunistic investments.
What’s a copy trader?
A copy trader is an individual that replicates or copies another investor’s strategy, with the goal of profiting alongside the investments that another trader or investor is making. These types of traders prevail on social trading platforms.
What’s an opportunity trader?
An opportunity trader is someone that waits for certain rare developments or events in financial markets in order to make an investment on an opportunistic basis, with the goal of benefiting from the volatility that often comes with unexpected events.

The beginning of online trading
It began in 1996, when the Swiss Stock Exchange (SWX) also became an electronic system. Since then, all banks being part of SWX operate from their own trading rooms connected to the stock exchange via computer. The digital age has enabled many online brokerages to facilitate trading for retail as well as professional investors, and has enormously increased the number of investments that traders can make, and the speed at which these orders can be executed. Since the onset of online trading, the speed, efficiency as well as the costs of investing have improved dramatically, and provided access to the financial markets to any investors who wish to participate in the financial markets.
