This method is used to create a trade/investment for an offering. This requires Account ID and the total number of units/shares to be purchased by the account. Creating a trade represents the intention to invest and does NOT initiate any sort of fund move. To initiate an ACH transfer for a trade, you will need to use the externalFundMove method.
