Definition of Stag:

  1. Stag is a slang term for a short-term speculator—a day trader, for example— who attempts to profit from short-term market movements by quickly moving in and out of positions. Day traders, or stags, typically require access to a lot of liquid capital to fund their positions and make a living. This is required because they may be attempting to gain returns on small price movements multiple times each day or with multiple positions at the same time.

  2. Without a partner at a social gathering.

  3. Stags will often use techniques associated with technical analysis or tape reading as the basis for their trading decisions since long-term fundamental analysis typically does not help when looking to make quick trading decisions over the course of hours or minutes.

  4. A person who applies for shares in a new issue with a view to selling at once for a profit.

  5. A social gathering attended by men only.

  6. A male deer.

  7. Stockmarket term for the investor who buys newly issued shares to sell them as soon as trading in them begins, to make a quick profit.
