What is trading
Trading is when two people or companies exchange goods or services with each other. For example, if you give someone a piece of candy, they might give you a toy in exchange. Trading has been around for thousands of years, and today people and companies trade goods and services all over the world. An analogy for trading is bartering. When people barter, they exchange one thing for another without using money. For example, a farmer might trade a bushel of apples for a pair of shoes from a shoe maker. Fun Fact: The world’s largest stock exchange is the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), which has more than 2,400 companies listed on it.
