    Default Help me with sentence, please

    Hello.

    Could you, please, help with understanding of meaning of sentence.

    Sentence "Trade on top".

    Does it means "Trade very good", "Trade better then others"?

    If not, what does this sentence mean?

    Thank you very much.

    It could mean either. Can you give us the context?

    In fact I'm looking for a brandname for my website name. So, is this headline "trade on top" suitable for meaning as "trade very good" or "be the best in trading" or "improve trading".

    Right! I am not sure it quite expresses that concept.

    How about Trade at the Top or Top Trade ?

    Thank you for quick respond.

    Unfortunately, "Trade At The Top" is too long.
    "Top Trade" domains already reserved.

    As I understand it's quite complicated to understand what does "Trade on top" means. So it's not very good choice for website "tradeontop.com". What about "Trade at top" without "the". So is it suitable for me
    "tradeattop.com"? May be you can offer something else? ;))

    Thank you.

    Thank you so much for your constant help!
    Yes, your versions are very nice. However... What about "Trade At Top". Without article "the". I'd like domain tradeattop.com very much. :) What will you understand when hear "Trade at top" sentence? Is it possible to say without the article "the"?
