I don’t know why you are adding this
'capabilities' => array( 'manage_terms' => 'manage_trade_status', 'edit_terms' => 'edit_trade_status', 'delete_terms' => 'delete_trade_status', 'assign_terms' => 'assign_trade_status' )
that has to do with the permissions for people to be allowed to do those things and depends on those capabilities existing. That is beyond what I was talking about.
I thought that you were using an ACF taxonomy field. To use a select field or whatever type of choice field that “trade_status” represents than in order to have the post updated with the correct terms you would need to use wp_set_object_terms() when saving the post (acf/save_post). It would be easier to use a taxonomy field unless there is a reason not to, like your field being in a repeater.

ACF wouldn’t be so widely used in WordPress if it didn’t have some pretty amazing capabilities. In this article, we look at a few of the features we’ll discuss during “7 things you didn’t know you could do with ACF” at #WPEDecode later this month. https://t.co/5lnsTxp81j pic.twitter.com/Yf0ThPG1QG— Advanced Custom Fields (@wp_acf) March 16, 2023
