To Invest or Trade in Shares?

Invest or Trade? At the outset the words and meaning sound similar as it may imply the same . However if one has a closer look , there is a suttle difference . The difference primarily comes from the time horizon or the perspective of the investor or the share trader. An investor has a longer time perspective with respect to the sale and purchase of his shares while a share trader has a very short time perspective. In india with the present investment scenario , most of the share traders have a short time span of trading that is primarily restricted to two to three months. Investments above one year are considered as long term and hence the word Invest. So decide on your time perspective and be a Happy Investor or Share Trader-Depends on What you are comfortable with.
