Trading basics: positions


In Wunderbit Trading we define strategy as a complete plan of actions that should be predetermined by the trader before each order. That is why our terminal have advanced order types, which allows to set the entry and exit points in each strategy.

Long position

Long Position is created when a Тrader buys (Enters Long) a security with the expectation that it will rise in value to sell (Exit Long) it later.

Short position

Short Position is created when a Тrader sells (Enter Short) a security first with the intention of repurchasing it at a lower price, i.e. to buy it back (Exit Short).
