Day trading refers to the practice of buying and selling financial instruments within the same trading day, with the goal of making profits from short-term price fluctuations. Day traders typically engage in active trading and make multiple trades throughout the day, aiming to take advantage of small price movements. In day trading, traders may focus on various financial instruments such as stocks, currencies (forex), commodities, or derivatives. They often use technical analysis tools, charts, and indicators to identify short-term trends, patterns, and trading opportunities. Day traders primarily rely on the price volatility and liquidity of the assets they trade.
