Kabu Trader Shun (Japanese: 株トレーダー瞬 Hepburn: Kabu Torēdā Shun?, literally "Stock Trader Shun") is an adventure video game for the Nintendo DS. The game was developed and published by Capcom and released in Japan on June 7, 2007. In the game, the player assumes the role of a young stock trader named Shun Aiba. Shun's father was a trader who went bankrupt and disappeared five years earlier. At the game's opening, Shun is suddenly summoned by his father's former trading partner, Toru Narasaki, who wishes to teach him the tricks of the trade. Shun is joined by Hanako Kirikagura, Toru's pupil and the daughter of a family of entrepreneurs.

The gameplay is split into two parts: adventure and trading. Adventure mode is much like Capcom's Ace Attorney series, where Shun travels around town furthering the story. Trading mode consists of Shun battling against rival traders, earning a set amount of money, or trading with an AI partner. Shun can purchase or gain Trading Arts to increase his skills in this mode.

Kabu Trader Shun was produced by Tatsuya Kitabayashi (Mega Man: Maverick Hunter X, Mega Man Powered Up) and directed by Ikuo Ando (planning for Haunting Ground, scenario head for Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter).
