Day trading is the practice of quickly and frequently buying and selling stocks in the belief that the investor can capture substantial value through the short-term changes in the stock price.
Day trading refers to the practice of buying and selling the same stock within the same trading day. Investors practicing day trading believe they can create substantial returns by capitalizing on the natural volatility of the market.
