Online stock trading in the US could be about to undergo sweeping reform as regulators try and get to grips with the activities of day traders.

It's alleged that some day traders -- which account for up to 15 per cent of NASDAQ's daily volume -- are misselling their services to novice investors saying it will make them bundles of cash.
