Buy and Hold

Submitted by Sharemarket News on 19 April, 2011 - 14:23

Buy and Hold is an investment strategy where shares are bought then held for long periods of time (years), regardless of market fluctuations. Shares are held on the assumption that stock prices will go up in the long run (capitalist economies expand, so stock prices rise as well). The opposite of buy and hold is day trading.
