The answer to your question is as follows:

Day trading has little to do with actual investing. Usually day traders watch the market and buy and sell on short-term price fluctuation (normally within one day). For this reason, a number of Islamic scholars have termed this as closer to gambling and thus it is prohibited. In addition to the religious reasons, there are also practical ones, because of the very high risk day trading involves. (And Allah knows best)
