    Call it investing, if you want, but when you take your money from place to place on a daily basis (day trading) you're not investing, you're gambling.

    Investing is more like putting $500 in Jane the ice cream shops coffers after reading and agreeing with her business plan and waiting as she sells ice cream for a return on your investment.

    Investing is not buying $6k in Walmart shares and 3 hours later selling them.
