What is a trading account?

A trading account is used to buy or sell assets on a broker’s platform. The term may refer to a leveraged account used for speculation, as opposed to a General Investment Account that holds longer-term positions.

Trading accounts can be used to access a variety of market types, such as forex, indices, shares and commodities.
