Investing/Finance/Trading/Crypto Dictionary
Tangible assets: Assets that have a physical form and can be touched, such as land, buildings, machinery, and equipment. They have value because they can be used to produce goods and services, and can be sold for cash or used as collateral for loans.
Technical analysis: A method of evaluating securities by analyzing statistics generated by market activity, such as past prices and volume. Technical analysts do not attempt to measure a security's intrinsic value, but instead use charts and other tools to identify patterns that can suggest future activity.
Ticker: A symbol assigned to a security traded on a stock exchange, used to uniquely identify and track the security. Tickers are typically a combination of letters and are used to identify stocks, options, and other securities.
Time decay (theta): The rate at which the value of an option decreases as the expiration date approaches. Theta is a measure of an option's time decay, and is typically quoted as the change in an option's value for each day that passes.
Time value: The portion of an option's price that is attributed to the amount of time remaining until the option expires. It represents the potential for the option to become more valuable as the underlying asset's price changes and the time remaining for the change to occur.
Total cost of ownership: The total cost of owning and operating an asset, including the purchase price, financing costs, operating costs, maintenance costs, and disposal costs. This is used to evaluate the financial feasibility of purchasing an asset and is used to compare different options.
Trading floor: A physical location where traders buy and sell securities, commodities, or other financial instruments. Trading floors are typically found in stock exchanges and other financial institutions, and are characterized by the presence of electronic trading systems, large screens displaying prices and other data, and a high level of activity.
Trading plan: A set of rules and guidelines that a trader or investor uses to make decisions about buying and selling securities. It can include things like what types of securities to trade, when to enter and exit trades, and how to manage risk.
Trailing step: A percentage by which a stop-loss or stop-limit order is adjusted in favor of the trade as the market price moves in favor of the trade. It allows the trader to lock in profits as the price moves in their favor, while also limiting their potential loss.
Trailing stop orders: A type of stop-loss order that adjusts based on the trading price of the stock. It works by setting a percentage or dollar amount away from the market price, and if the stock price moves in favor of the trade, the stop-loss price will also move with it, allowing the trade to lock in profits while limiting their potential loss. This type of order is different from a traditional stop-loss order which is set at a fixed price and does not move with the market price.
Treasury stock: Stock that a company has repurchased and holds in its own treasury. It is the opposite of outstanding stock, which is owned by shareholders. Treasury stock is not considered outstanding and therefore does not entitle the holder to vote or receive dividends.
Trend: A general direction of a market or of the price of an asset, either upward or downward. It is important to identify trend to help traders and investors make decisions on when to buy, hold or sell an asset.
Trending shares: Shares of a company that are experiencing an upward trend in their value, or expected to experience an upward trend in value. These shares are often sought after by investors as they have the potential for strong returns.
