Competitive Trader

Business / Taxes / Competitive Trader: Competitive traders, also known as registered competitive traders or floor traders, buy and sell stocks for their own accounts on the floor of an exchange. Traders must follow very specific rules governing when they can buy and sell. But since they trade in large volumes and do not pay commissions on their transactions, they can profit from small differences between the prices at which they buy and sell.
