Definition of 'Day Trading'
It is said that this is a highly speculative practice and that as many as 90% of all day traders lose money.
If a day trader holds a position overnight to the following day then that trade is reclassified as a swing trade. This might happen, for example, if the market closes before the trader manages to close their day trade.
