DayTrading refers to the set of rules that determine investment choices with a short-term perspective, understood as a period ranging from 1 day to a few weeks. In this period of time, the trader who uses the logic of DayTrading evaluates the entries and exits from the market.

The intraday Trader, on the other hand, has a much faster work setting, that is, it evaluates entries and exits that tend to be completed within a few hours, often forced closure is sought even at the end of the day. The intraday trader needs a good precision of analysis and strict rules to respect.

There is a third category of investor which is known by the term “drawer” and which indicates the willingness to remain in a market for a long period (months).

Which trading method to choose?

Although at first glance they may seem two opposite ways of approaching the market, instead these 2 methods are made to live together. In fact, it is logical to expect that the trader will be able to develop a part of the trades in intraday and a part for the medium term.

For example, if the GOLD touches a level of support considered important, you can put into practice both a long to close in intraday and a long to hold for the medium term (in this case we are talking about running).
