Holding period

The length of time an 

Asset

 was held (the time between the 

Trade

 date of the 

Purchase

 and the 

Trade

 date of the sale). The 

Holding period

 determines whether a gain or loss is 

Short-term

 or 

Long-term

 for 

Tax

 purposes. A long-term 

Holding period

 is one year and one day. The short-term 

Holding period

 is less than one year.
