If I sell 100 stocks of a company and buy 50 of the same company on the same day, will that 50 stocks be considered Intraday Trading?

    "considered Intraday trading" for what purpose? Tax? Risk? Margin? Something else? What specifically are you concerned about?

  • @DStanley Yes, Tax and brokerage (often high compared to delivery).

If you buy and sell an option or an equity on the same day, it's a day trade.
