Stock Basket

Stock Basket

A stock basket is a group of selected stocks divided by sector or certain criteria, that allow investors to buy or sell simultaneously. An investor or a trader can change the allocation of the portfolio easily by stock baskets. If you believe a sector will have a good performance in the coming period, you buy the stock basket, while if you are expecting a weak performance, you sell the stock basket.

Advantages of Stock Basket Trading:

  • Hedging Other Investments
  • Easier Portfolio Allocation
  • Speculate on a sector not a single company

  • Better Control Over Investment
  • Less Volatile
