Business rated badly (5)


I believe the answer is:


Here is my best explanation:

'business' is the definition.

(trade is a kind of business)

'rated badly' is the subsidiary indication.

'badly' indicates anagramming the letters.

'rated' is an anagram of 'trade'.

(Other definitions for trade that I've seen before include "Business - (kind of) wind", "Personal occupation", "Occupation", "Commercial dealings", "Commercial exchange of goods and services", "Traffic", "Skilled occupation", "Barter or swap", "Give and receive (blows)" and "Craft".)
