    Correct usage

    Hi all,

    My husband is starting a trading company and we are confused about using the word/s 'Trade' or 'Trading' in the name. For example, should it be 'ABC Trade Company' or 'ABC Trading Company.'

    Please advise.

    Re: Correct usage

    I would use "Trading" but "Trade" is not wrong.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I would also use "Trading". Do a quick Google search for 'trading company' and 'trade company' and see what others have selected to use in their company names. Good luck with your new business!

    Re: Correct usage

    A better title would have been 'Trade or trading?.
