If you want to trade and invest like a Wall Street hedge fund manager, you might be interested in position trading. Position trading is essentially the opposite of the fast-paced, high-risk environment of day trading. With position trading, you are buying and holding a position with the expectation of capitalising on a long-term trend. You will buy with the expectation that an upward trend will continue over a long period of time and then sell a few months or years down the line. When it comes to position trading vs swing trading, the main difference here is that swing trading usually means holding a position for a few days or weeks, while position trading operates in months and years.
