  • What is Pattern-Day Trading? Why is it important to know?
    We would like you to read and understand the important rules below pertaining to Pattern Day Trading as being tagged a pattern day trader can affect your ability to trade. Below is a text from SEC’s Office of Investor Education and Advocacy. What is a day-trade? FINRA rules define a day trade as: The purchasing and selling or the selling and purchasing of the same security on the same day in a margin account. What is a pattern-day trader? FINRA rules define a pattern day trader as any customer who executes four or more “day trades” within five business days, provided that the number of day trades represents more than six percent of the customer’s total trades in the margin account for that same five business day period. Customers should note that this rule is a minimum requirement, and that some broker-dealers use a slightly broader definition in determining whether a customer qualifies as a “pattern day trader.” We recommend that customers contact their brokerage firms to determine whether a broader definition applies to their trading activities. A broker-dealer may also designate a customer as a pattern day trader if it “knows or has a reasonable basis to believe” that a customer will engage in pattern day trading. For example, if a customer’s broker-dealer provided day trading training to such customer before opening the account, the broker-dealer could designate that customer as a pattern day trader. $25,000 requirement The minimum equity requirement for a customer who is as a pattern day trader is $25,000. This $25,000 requirement must be deposited into the designated customer's account prior to any day trading activities and must be maintained at all times. A customer cannot fulfill this $25,000 requirement by cross-guaranteeing separate accounts. Each day trading account is required to meet the $25,000 requirement independently, using only the financial resources available in that account. If a customer’s account falls below the $25,000 requirement, the customer will not be permitted to day trade until the customer deposits cash or securities into the account to restore the account to the $25,000 minimum equity level.
