Position Trader

Trades longer-term trends lasting from several days to several weeks. Trades for points, not for ticks.

Additional Comments:

A successful position trader will probably make more money over time for the same capital and risk as a roomful of successful day traders - that is, if you could find enough successful day traders to fill a room. Most of the legendary traders of the past century have been position traders. A position trader rarely if ever monitors the market during trading hours.
