Position Trading

Trading where positions are held for an extended period: at least overnight, but often for several weeks, months, or longer.

This term is often used in contrast to short-term trading, day trading (positions opened and closed on the same day), or swing trading (positions held for only a few days).

There are no strict, universally valid time periods marking the borders between these terms (except intraday vs. overnight).
