What kind of trading brings in the most money?

The stock market is a traditional way to make money, and there are many different ways to trade stocks. Each one has good and bad points. How you trade will determine which type of trading is best and most profitable. You’ll have to decide which of the following methods fits your trading style and could make you money. Let’s look at the different ways people trade on the stock market.

Profitable ways to trade

The following are widely accepted ways to trade on the stock market, and different people can choose one based on how they like to trade and how much risk they are willing to take:

  1. Delivery trading:- Delivery trading is when you buy stocks and hold onto them in your Demat account for more than one day. Stocks can be kept for anywhere between two days and two or more years, but you can’t sell them on the same day. The main benefit of this method is that you can take advantage of a stock’s long-term profits without having to record a loss.
  2. Intraday trading:- Intraday trading is a type of trading where you buy and sell stocks before the market closes on the same day. You have to keep an eye on the market all day and look for a good time to sell your stocks. Intraday trading is a great way to make money quickly as long as you buy the right stocks
  3. Margin trading:- Most of the time, margin trading is useful when trading futures and options. You have to buy a set of securities for which you have to pay a margin price to the broker upfront. The Securities & Exchange Board of India has already set the percentage of the total amount traded that makes up this margin (SEBI). This type of trading uses leverage to make profits and losses bigger.
  4. Short-sell trading:- In this case, traders just think the market is going down and act accordingly. You take shares out on loan from a broker and then sell them on the open market. You wait until the price of the stock drops enough for you to buy it back at a lower price. The profit is the difference between the two amounts after this process.
  5. Buy Today Sell Tomorrow (BTST): -This type of trading is a change to the delivery type of trading. You buy a stock and then decide to sell it the next day or when you think you can make money from it. You don’t have to take possession of your stocks, so you don’t have to pay the depository participant (DP) fees.
  6. Sell Today Buy Tomorrow (STBT):-This type of trading is for the derivatives market, which you think will go down. First, you open a short-selling position and sell the securities before the market closes. You expect to be able to buy the same securities at a lower price the next day, which will even out your position.

Trading Methods for Different Types of Traders

Most traders fall into two main groups: “experienced” and “novice.” Aside from these, there are some short-term traders who play with low or high risk. Here is a list of the best way to combine different trading styles with different traders to make the most money:


Expert players take big risks, and intraday trading, short selling, and margin trading are some of the most common trading strategies they use. Short-sell trading is the most popular of these for experienced traders who know a lot about how the market moves. Figuring out when and where to sell and buy securities takes practice and knowledge.


Delivery trading is often chosen by new and inexperienced players to reduce their risk. With the right help from an experienced broker, even new traders can use margin trading techniques to make big money. These methods cover risks better, but traders have to be patient during the whole process. Beginner traders should focus on long-term trading because it gives them a second chance after a market drop.

Quick players:

People who want to make money quickly and don’t have the patience to stay put in the market usually choose BTST or STBT. Another good way to make money in a day is to trade within the same day. Most of the time, quick players are middle-level traders who don’t have a lot of experience but lose their cool when asked to stay put for a long time.

A Brief Look at 4 Ways to Trade

There are four main types of trading styles, which are:

  1. Trading in positions
  2. Swing trading
  3. Day trading Scalping

This article’s goal is to take a closer look at these four styles and talk about what’s good and bad about each one so that new traders can decide which one to go with. Instead of comparing pros and cons, as is common in analysis, we will look at what each trading style has to offer and how much work it takes.

Position trading:-

Position trading is the one that lasts the longest. A position trader will leave a trade open for months or even years. Since they trade over a long period of time, they look at the big picture. Because of this, they will use fundamental analysis most of the time. Position trading is all about keeping an eye on the news and the way the world’s economy works and trying to understand it.

Most of the time, they don’t look at daily or hourly charts. They care more about price charts for the next week or month.

Swing Trading

This comes after trading positions and is for the medium to long term. Swing traders can keep a position open for anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. Both technical analysis and fundamental analysis are used by swing traders. Since a swing trade might end in a couple of days, they can also take advantage of smaller moves if they want to.

Day Trading

This is the trading method that is used most often. It is trading for the short term. Day traders can keep a position open for anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours. To avoid rolling over, the goal is to leave before the end of the day. Most day traders use technical analysis to make trading decisions, but some may also use fundamental analysis. Day traders use charts for the hour or the minute.


Scalping is a way to trade for very short periods of time. Scalpers only stay in one place for a few minutes at a time. They may even come in and out in a matter of seconds. Scalpers just look at charts and use parts of technical analysis to take advantage of small changes. To do this, they use minute charts.
