both of them is difference, but to make it easier to understand, when you investing, you trust your money to someone and you don't need and can't do anything with your money until certain period, when you trading, you used your skill and knowledge to generate profit and you need to some work in trading, you need to pay attention to the chart and keep the updated news everyday

so when investing you depend on somebody else when trading you depend on yourself

The best way to explain it is to make a good statement rather than making a long and very technical definition that is hard for the reader to understand. So here is my explanation "  All trading is an investment but not all investment is trading". It simply means that even trading itself is considered as investment. But investment has many forms aside from just trading, it could be investment in networking, loans, business and many more.

I haven't experienced it yet, but as far as I know the difference with these two: Trading, by this kind of business you need to bargain in the market you should know every single detail for you to be not "luge" and also you're the one who's thinking about this and for your strategy, while investing is that you will give money to someone and they will be the one who will take care of it they're are the one who will be responsible in your money.

For more clear:
Quote
Trade is a basic economic concept involving the buying and selling of goods and services, with compensation paid by a buyer to a seller, or the exchange of goods or services between parties.
http://www.investopedia.com/terms/t/trade.asp

Quote
An investment is an asset or item that is purchased with the hope that it will generate income or will appreciate in the future.
http://www.investopedia.com/terms/i/investment.asp

It's very different. For more clear you can do some practice, to see how the different by your own eyes.

When you buy something in hope that it will have greater value in the future, that is investing. Some examples are gold, assets, land or bitcoin.

While trading is a little bit different. You can purchase or sell something for some profit. You can be profitable in trading whether the price is going up or down.

Actually trading is a type of investment. Where you are going to buy and sell alt coins that you think that has potential to pump in future.

And you will buy it at lower price and you'll get profit from selling it at higher price. Investing is simply putting a capital into something that you think is gonna be profitable for you.

There are many types of investment.

Trading is something you make on buy and sell directly awhile investing something you put your money on some investing site and they generate your money while it is growing, so you can get the money you invest with the percent given as the condition permitted.

the investopedia links above are explanatory enough but in my opinion you can say trading is an investment that you need to work on it too. but the opposite is not true.
generally when you invest, you don't do anything apart from hoping that what you invested in becomes successful and gives you money (profit) but when you trade, you invest your money and have to work on making that profit happen.

Trading means buys something at the low price and sell at higher price than the price you buy it and you keep the profit on the difference while investing means you are trusting someone with you money to run his business and he will pay you dividends if he made profit

Trading is often done frequently, to make many small gains.
Investing is done once, to make one big profit in the distant future.

investing is the purchase of an "item" or "commodity" for the long term rise in value.  trading is short term and involved a more structured quest for quicker changes in value, or at least it should

Investing could be anything into which we are putting our money. A broad classification. Usually investing may not require your active participation for profit generations. If requires, then we term it as 'active business' else 'passive investments'.

Risking money in gambling is a type of investment with active participation whereas investing into gambling site's bankroll is a passive investment. Your no action is required.

Trading is a pure business type. It needs investments and active participation.
Trading is one of the types of investing as investing could be associated with gambling/trading/stocks and bonds/real life businesses.

In other words when a trading lasts for long haul it turns as an investment.
Trading and investing are similar things when are not considering the time constrain, but based on risk levels we can differentiate them but for that we again will be in need of time. With long time requirement, investments are less riskier compared to trading.

As to me, the most difference comes from the fact that while trading you earn mainly through your active effort and thus don't depend so much on external factors. If we take Bitcoin as an example, you could just buy a few and then wait till the price rises, but it may not rise, or rise too little for your target value. Trading, on the other hand, allows you to remove at least some of the external factors that affect your profits, though this doesn't in the least mean that internal factors (i.e. your trading experience) will guarantee you any profits...

Or won't in fact contribute to greater losses through the lack of experience

For me investment is something we spend and have a profit in return.  It is either letting people to manage your money or you do it yourself.  One example of investment is trading where you put money, skills, effort and time to yeild a profit.  while trading is where you exchange your stocks with other stocks, or stuff with other stuff.  Trading is just one section of investment.  So I can say investment is has a wider area while trading is one of the area of investment.

as far as I know, investing is you save your money on a company or on a business and then you will get the profit in a particular period of time. so you need to wait to get profit. while trading is you sell kinds of coins on market and you can get profit in a shorter time than investing. but it depends on your strategy, how long you will save your money on the market and sell it.
