You are given an array prices
where prices[i]
is the price of a given stock on the i^{th}
day.
You want to maximize your profit by choosing a single day to buy one stock and choosing a different day in the future to sell that stock.
Return the maximum profit you can achieve from this transaction. If you cannot achieve any profit, return 0
.
Example 1:
Input: prices = [7,1,5,3,6,4]
Output: 5
Explanation: Buy on day 2 (price = 1) and sell on day 5 (price = 6),
profit = 61 = 5.
Note that buying on day 2 and selling on day 1 is not allowed
because you must buy before you sell.
Example 2:
Input: prices = [7,6,4,3,1]
Output: 0
Explanation: In this case, no transactions are done and the max profit = 0.
Constraints:
1 <= prices.length <= 10^{5}
0 <= prices[i] <= 10^{4}
