trading strategy characterised by the regular

Day trading can be extremely risky. Day
trading generally is not appropriate for people of
limited resources and limited investment or low risk tolerance. You should be
prepared to lose funds that you use for day
trading. In particular, you should not put large fund
activities from retirement savings, student loans,
mortgages, emergency funds, funds set aside for
purposes such as education or home ownership, or funds
required to meet your living expenses. Further, certain
evidence indicates that an investment of less than Rs
20,000 will significantly impair the ability of a day
trader to make a profit. Of course, an investment of Rs
20,000 or more will in no way guarantee success.
Be cautious of claims of large profits from
day trading. You should be wary of advertisements or
other statements that emphasise the potential for large
profits in day trading. Day trading can also lead to
large and immediate financial losses.

Also, many brokers do not extend

clients. This is also a disadvantage because
some times, a perfect buy signal may be
jeopardised by a sudden fall in the broader
market. It is, however observed, that in almost
every such case, the price of the particular
stock in which a Buy was given, bounces back the
very next day, not only wiping out the loss of
the earlier day, but even delivering a handsome
profit the next day. Without BTST facility, the
client would be forced to book a loss.
Such lack of flexibility by the broker increases
the inefficiency of the trader.
