In trading a different outlook could be see as intraday and you do not have to wait for results,but in investment you have to wait and see the position according to which you have to invest for long term.

how trading is different from investing and which one is more profitable?

A trading is short-term whereas an investing is meant for a long-term horizon.

A trading involves a considerable knowledge about the technical analysis (chart study) while both the fundamental & technical analysis can be used in making investments in stocks.

When it comes to profit it depends upon your knowledge and patience. Because both the methods can make you rich or beggar as the situation goes.

In my opinion, investing periodically and religiously is a better way of investing in the stock market, this method is called as SIP. Good luck!

Investors and traders seek profits through market participation. In general, investors seek larger returns over an extended period through buying and holding. Traders, by contrast, take advantage of both rising and falling markets to enter and exit positions over a shorter time-frame, taking smaller, more frequent profits.

When you invest in a company, you are interested in the consistent returns that the company will provide in terms of dividends. You focus on the value of the company & its management.
If you buy shares with the intent to sell them at a higher price - maybe some years later - you are trading. Here you look at price attractiveness and capital appreciation from perceived future demand for the company's shares.

Trading and investment both are different, it depends on our goal. in trading, you can make more money but the risk factor is also high and if you start investing in the market for 5 years goal or 10 or 20 years goal. the return may be lesser compared to trading.

Perfect one. It's not about timing, as traders not only use technical but also fundamental analysis.
