Trading Strategy

A trading strategy is a plan (often implemented in an algorithm) that defines when a trader will place orders to enter and exit an investment. Trading strategies range from simple sets of rules that an individual follows all the way to highly complicated applied artificial intelligence computer systems.

Many successful trading strategies go beyond orders to buy and sell. They often include risk management, hedging, and money management.
