Hi : online share trading basically refers to opening a share trading account with an internet online broker and trading shares using that account via the internet. You can trade shares online using various techniques that you have learned eg. momentum trading, day trading, trading based on fundamentals analysis, trading based on technical analysis, long-term investing etc. Day trading is more specific. It refers to trading a share (or any other investment tool like forex, index, futures, options) within the trading hours of the market. For example, you might buy a share when the market opens and sell the share after 30 mins or sell the shares before the stock market closes at 4pm. Day trading is sometimes refer to as scalp trading by some traders. Yours Truly, Tony Chai experiences from a disabled trader http://options4u.blogspot.com
