Difference Between Intraday And Delivery

intraday and delivery



As the name suggests within a day, It’s just like how a small milkman purchases the milk and sells it off the same day, he can’t keep the milk with him, all of it needs to get sold the same day. Day trading means intraday trading, Day trading has a facility where the investor can invest into the shares on the same day and if he sees profit in that share on the same date he can sell it on the same day. Intraday is when you buy a lot of shares of a company. These are fixed lots of 500 or 750 or any particular number of shares. You have to sell them the same day.

The benefit you get here is that unlike delivery you have to pay only a margin money say 15% or 20% (different as per the company) of the total value of shares. When you sell the lot you get a profit of total gain per share multiplied by the total number of shares.
