position building


The process of creating a long or short market position by buying or selling shares. To create these positions, an investor will buy up a large portion of shares to achieve a long position and sell a large amount of shares if he/she wants to maintain a short position. Typically, an investor's interest in a stock can be gauged by the type of position he/she builds.
