    Default than do stock investors

    Because futures traders operate in a shorter time dimension than do stock investors, I would be inclined to shorten the major trend to anything over six months in the commodity markets.

    Is it possible to say "Because futures traders operate in a shorter time dimension than stock investors do, [...]" and how would it change the sentence?

    Thanks.

    That's correct too. It doesn't change the sentence at all, in this case. The original uses inversion in a place where it's optional.
