Dictionary Says

Definition of 'Stag'


A slang term for short-term speculator. A stag would be equivalent to a day trader who attempts to profit off short-term market moves by quickly moving in and out of positions. Day traders, or stags, typically require access to a lot of liquid capital in order to fund their positions, since they may be attempting to gain returns on very small price movements.
