Both intraday trading and long term trading can be profitable if you know the right methods and skills to carry it out successfully. However, I will say that, go for the technique that suits your personal goals, objectives, and methods. Also, choose intraday trading if you can donate a significant amount of your time in a day (when the market is open). If you are someone who is doing a 9-5 job, long term trading is the better option for you. Because time is of essence when you trade. Only by giving proper time can you research and analyse the market conditions well, and make good trading decisions.
