Overview of Day Trading
Strategies for day trading
Main strategy for day Trading
The primary strategy of day trading is to earn consistent money on daily basis.
Second strategy for day Trading
Observe carefully the stock price movements - Stock price movements like Open, (the first price at which the stock opens when market opens in the morning) High, (The stock price reached at the highest level in a day) Low (The stock price reached the lowest level in a day) and finally Close. (The stock price at which it remains or the final price of the stock when the market closes for a day).
One more important factor to watch is stock price fluctuations. Stock price fluctuations means by how many dollars or cents the stock is moving (either
up or down). This gives you an idea on what price to buy and at what price to sell (or first sell and then buy).
This strategy is very useful for day trading but in fact you get more superior idea (or plan) for TOMORROWíS DAY TRADING for this particular stock.
Keep a close watch on Supply and Demand - Supply and demand means how many buyers are willing to buy (this indicates the demand) and how many sellers are aggressive to sell (this indicates the supply). Always remember the stock price movement depends on supply and demand. Simple thing to remember (not only in stock market or day trading but also in general life) that more demand and less supply means price is going to move up and if more supply and less demand then price is going to come down.
Overcall if you study this strategy carefully then you will come to know whether the people are interested to buy or sell the stock and hence the price moves accordingly that is if see more buyers then the price is going to move up and if you see more sellers then price is going to fall down.
Day trading made easy
Buying and selling of shares on daily basis is called day trading this is also called as Intra day trading. Whatever you buy today you have to sell it today OR whatever you sell today you have to buy it today and very importantly during market hours that is 9.55 am to 3.30 pm (Indian time).
Advantages of Day Trading
Margin trading -
In Day trading you get margin on your balance amount means you get more leverages (amount) on your available balance amount to do day trading this concept is called margin trading. Margin trading is only possible in day trading and not in delivery trading. How much extra amount (margin) you are going to get that totally depends on your broker, or your online trading system brokers.
Some broker provides 3, 4, 5, and 6 times extra margin.
If you do margin trading then you have to square off your open trades on the same day (means if you bought shares then you have to sell and if you sold shares then you have to buy)before market time (that is 3:30 PM) finishes.
Second important advantage is that you have to pay is less brokerage (commissions) on day trading (Intraday) as compared to delivery trading. This brokerage again depends from broker to broker (or on your online trading system).
In day trading you can sell and then buy this is called short sell which you cant do in delivery trading. You can sell shares when prices are falling and then buy when price falls further.
Disadvantage of Day Trading
As you are benefited to get more extra amount to trade (that is margin trading) and get more extra profit it is also equally true that you are also taking more risk of loss.
At any cost you have to square off the open transaction before 3:30 PM (especially if you are doing margin trading) at that time the price may not be in your favor.

Taking into consideration these important points following basic things you should look in for shares while choosing them for day trading.
What exactly these terms mean and how to use them while Day Trading.
The Price volatility means the movement (up and down) of share price should be more (or high) through out the day. In other words the fluctuation in share prices should be on high rate so that it will be easy for you to buy and sell on different prices. Suppose if share is moving up and down in very narrow range then on what price you will buy and sell? So it is always better if you choose shares which have high volatility in price movement.
Volume means trading quantities. The shares which you choose for day trading should have high volumes (or high traded quantity).
Why this is required?
The high volume indicates that there is more liquidity. Liquidity means lots of transactions had took place on this share and more people are interested to trade in this share. This will ease your trading job because you will get more exposure to the price to buy and sell at anytime. Due to high volumes there will be also high price fluctuations.

Guide for daily profit in day trading
Donít jump in trend early - Wait and get paper confirmation of trend change, and then plan and do your trades (buy/sell). Donít jump in or do early trades before any trade change confirmation this may damage your capital (bank balance).
Donít wait in trade for long time - Suppose that you had done one trade (either buy or sell) but the scrip is not moving either up or down, it is just stable or moving with very low price difference, then you should get out of that trade and look for other scripís. You may encounter these type of situations when indices (NSE or BSE) and not moving (or moving with narrow range). At such time either you wait or come out of trade, donít loose patience and fall under loss.
Donít change your trend on volume volatility - Some time you enter in trade by seeing the buy and sell quantities. For example, suppose you brought shares by seeing more buy quantity then sell quantity, expecting more buy quantity may push the share/stock up but after few minutes you see exactly reverse that you see more sell quantity and less buy quantity or both buy and sell high quantity or the difference of buying and selling quantity is decreased as compared to what you had seen before. So this point is very important, donít panic here and sell off your stock, wait and realize the situation properly and then take action. This situation comes many times but if you are sure that your share is going to move up then stick to it.
Beware of companiesí acquisition or any announcement by Government - Suppose in the morning, before market begins, you should read or viewed the news of any Indian Company has acquired any foreign company (or part of foreign company) if you see this is actually best news/things that Indian company. But if acquisition amount is far more than expectation then this good news will turn into worst news. The shares of that company will start falling. So you should not get in trade and buy shares you have to wait and watch how market or other people are responding to these shares and once you understand then you can trade. So always watch where the market heading towards and then react.
Announcement of Government - You should also be very careful to decide your trade based on any government announcement.
For example, if government has declared any hike in interest rate then its good news for bank stocks and hence the shares will rise but if government has declared 2nd rate hike in very less span of time as company to first one (stay within duration of one, two month or three month) then this news will be worse for bank stocks, the share may keeping fall during the trading period. So realize and analyze the news and finally watch market behavior and this fall or do trade you will get success.
