I'm a bit unclear about the definition of "investing" on PF&M. I've seen a number of questions trading. Is this considered "investing" for the purposes of this board? Please note that by "trading" I do not mean active investment management.
By "trading", I mean activity where the primary goal is to make short-term profits in markets like stocks, commodities, futures, options, etc. that are primarily based on changes in asset prices, rather than what I'd typically consider "investing" (ownership orientation, long-term time horizon).
I'm also not suggesting that these questions are off-topic. I think it's clear that these would at least fall under "strategies for earning and saving more money" as referenced in the Help Center. I am just wondering if the community considers these activities to be "investing".
