At the same time, with high risk there is also the potential for high rewards.Day trading stock often gives much higher returns than less risky types of investment like bonds, treasury bills, money market instruments and so on. Also, you must bear in mind that stocks are meant to be long-term investments, it is not a way to get-rich-quick.
