2. BTSt : you buy the stck for very short term and sell tomorrow after getting the gain
3. Options/ Future : a further contemplation of the stock when it increases ( in this eg. the price of the underlying stock may decrease) , leading to overall increase in the price of option
4. Mutual funds/ SIP : a investment in a fund controlled some other party ( financial institutions ) for a benefit in future.
The concept is applicable to commodities as well and is the base for most of the commodity trading.
