INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'In And Out'

Investors use an in and out trading strategy in an effort to take advantage of short-term fluctuations in the price of a security. It is more likely to be used by day traders, whom are less interested in long-term growth. This strategy tends to be riskier, because it relies on rapid changes in price in order to be profitable.
