Certainly. This forum has many members who are steadily profitable daytraders.

I'd agree that among aspiring traders (retail ones) the proportion who ever achieve steady, reliable profitability is probably lower with daytrading than is the case for most other "types" of trader - for the reasons you mention, among others - but very clearly it's possible.
