What is stock basket trading?

Stock trading is the buying and selling of a company's shares with an aim to make a profit. When you buy shares in a company, you own a small part of that company and the value of your investment will change as the company's share price moves up and down.

Stock basket trading is a little different. Instead of investing in individual stocks, you can trade the price movements of a group of companies that are grouped together based on theme (for example, Green) or industry (for example, Mobile) with a single trade.

Another plus? Stock baskets involve cheaper holding costs than trading multiple single stocks, and are a great way to diversify both your portfolio and spread your risk.

Expecting big market news or a wave of volatility? Trade the trend of the affected industry more easily and quickly.

There are many advantages of basket trading. Multiple trades can be placed in just one order. You can tailor your investment portfolio or can arrange your baskets by a range of categorisation by price, goals, industry, or sector. Maintaining a high level of controls over your trading portfolio is also a benefit. Once you have created your basket you can save it for later review at a later stage.

You can create and save baskets any time, e.g., during standard market hours or during non-market hours. Basket trading orders are eligible for execution, however, only during standard market hours which are 9:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. ET.

It is well known that diversification is one of the most time-tested trading strategies. Diversify your trades and learn the basket trading strategy so you don't put all your eggs in one basket.
