What is day trading?

Day trading is a strategy that involves entering and exiting positions within the same  business day. The term comes from legacy markets, referencing the fact that they’re only open for set periods during the day. Day traders are not expected to keep any of their positions open outside of those periods. 

Cryptocurrency markets, as you are probably aware, are not subject to opening or closing times. You can trade around the clock, all day, every day of the year. Still, day trading in the context of cryptocurrency tends to refer to a trading style where the trader enters and exits positions within  24 hours.

In day trading, you’ll often rely on technical analysis to determine which assets to trade. Because profits in such a short period can be minimal, you may opt to trade across a wide range of assets to try and maximise your returns. That said, some might exclusively trade the same pair for years.

This style is obviously a very active trading strategy. It can be very profitable, but because of that it also comes with a significant amount of risk.  Because of that, day trading is generally better suited to more experienced traders.
