If an investor invested money in a good fundamental company then there will be a chance to get good compounding return from the stocks market. if a good company share price falls than you can stay with is a company without booking any loss.

Trading for short terms buys, selling process( or same day) .so in short terms bases if the share price falls that risky for traders.

Trading Aim to earn money as soon as possible. example: if you have $100, You Brought a stock for a few days( or even the same days). If stock gain a 10% upside movement your total money will be $110 in a short period of time. This is a calculation if every day your profit is 10% then within 50 days your total money will be $14536.99. But this is only a calculation of trading because earning every 10% profit it next to impossible. maybe someday trader can lose their money if the trader is an expert in trading then he can manage the loss. For a new trader, it’s difficult to manage losses. bellow the calculation only a theory not practically can earn 10% for 50 days continue.
