Day trading is a short-term trading strategy in which traders aim to profit from price movement within a single trading day. Day traders will close all their positions before the close of the market to minimize risk. Day traders can hold positions from seconds to hours and from once a day to hundreds of times a day.
Day trading advantages
Day trading allows traders to profit from small market movements without holding long-term positions. A skilled trader can profit from only trading for a short period and does not need to worry about market movements when they have finished trading.
