SEE INTRADAY TRADING MEANS BUYING AND SELLING ON THE SAME DAY.PROFIT OR LOSS FROM THAT ACTIVITY IS SPECULATIVE PROFIT/LOSS.

The transactions of sale and purchases which are wind up in the same day are called intraday trades. It means that trader has not taken delivery of such transaction.

As explained by all,Intraday trading is speculating for gains by buying/selling and squaring off those buy/sell positons on the same day..

Procedure is same as for other type of trades,ie,Deliveries/BTST/STBT.But the difference is that in Intraday,positions are to be cleared on the same day.

Thanks all for your views.From the discussion I found that:

1. Sale / purchase Same day

2. Profit Calculation at the day end

3. Any profit and loss amount (in cash) we need to pa the same day.

4. Shares will be actually  purchased and sold same day.

5. If not sold those will be automatically sold at the day end at closing price of share.

But what will happen if in the case of loss, the difference amount is not in the account of trader.
