active investing

Definition

A strategy for generating profit from investments that involves continuous buying and selling as part of managing a portfolio, and constantly monitoring the investments within the portfolio for changes in value. Active investing is different from passive investing, which generally involves purchasing and holding long-term investments expected to increase in value, with little to no modification of the portfolio.
