Can I buy and sell shares of the same company on the same day?

It takes many days for the shares to be added to my DMAT account when I buy. So, I was wondering, if I could do the following:

1. Buy 20 shares today.
2. Sell 10 the day it goes up. I still have 10 free shares remaining.
3. Buy 10 if it goes down after a while on the same day. I still only have 10 free shares.
4. Sell the remaining 10 if it goes up again.
5. Buy 10 more if it goes down. And so on.

Basically, am I allowed to juggle my free shares like that? Maybe not the same day but even day by day. I don’t have a lot of money. I am trying to figure out how the share market works, what is allowed and what is not.

  1. If you already have some qty of the particular company in your portfolio. You can buy that stock and sell the one you have. ( Buying and Selling shares of Same Company on Same day)

  2. You cannot sell the shares that aren’t present in your DEMAT account in NEPSE. The ideology that you’re sharing is called intraday trading which is currently in works. Many stock markets around the world already have it in practice so lets hope we get to do the same.

  3. I think you are touching upon the concept of shorting ( or short selling) which is not yet available in NEPSE. So, no you can’t sell the shares unless it shows in your DEMAT account which usually takes T+3 days.
