Can anyone advise how soon can one sell stock after buying it? Can I buy today and sell tomorrow?

I'm new to investing so I'm not sure how it fully works.

Hello anon! You can sell it immediately once the order have been completed. This is usually what people call as Day Trading. You buy low and sell high.

Alternatively, you can buy your favourite stock and hold it for a long time to gain dividends. But do be wary and keep a lookout for their quarterly/annual financial report.

TLDR: You can sell immediately after purchase

Once the order has been fulfiled, you will see the share balance in your account. Thereafter, you may proceed to sell it.

Must wait for settlement?

Yes, can even sell it immediately in the next second, right after you own it.
