Market Terms

We don't know everything about the markets.  We're just devoted to learners.  Taken from those smarter than ourselves, here's how we define Accumulation.

Within the context of trading, accumulation can have several meanings.  When referring specifically to a traded asset, if there is an increase in buying activity, that asset is said to be “being accumulated.”  When referring to trading, accumulation can also refer to a position size that increases over several transactions.  It can even also refer to adding new positions into a portfolio as a whole.
