Trading 101: What is a ‘Day Trade’?


Trading 101: What is a 'Day Profession'?

Come join me for a live session where I chat much more about trading, the markets as well as all the money that can be made. Assert a seat right here:

How to Stay Clear Of The Pattern Day Trader Regulation –

Thanks to the federal government laws, in 2001 the Pattern Day Investor Guideline was introduced. The policy mentions that if you have less than $25,000 in your account, you can just have 3 day professions per five "moving day" duration. This brings up the logical concern that several more recent investors are left wondering "what exactly is a day trade?". I discuss precisely that in detail.

I show You how I made $1,006 from $100, then $257,000 from $1,006 with Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies!

    Hi clay. When you make an order of 500 ABC shares and only get a partial fill of 400, are you able to start selling the 400 shares that you have, or do you have to wait until the order of 500 shares is complete?

    1. ClayTrader

      Good question. You can start the sell the immediately.

    When was this implemented? I am new and was watching live trading where they made multiple order. Anyone can answer please

    1. ClayTrader

      2001 is the year. If you meet certain requirements, you can trade as much as you want.

    2. Tyrell Floyd

      Got to love the Government

    3. Ricardo Caput

      ClayTrader do you have a video explaining those requirements? Thanks for sharing anywya

    4. TruthSS

      @ClayTrader I also would like to know the requirements. 3 trades a day feels very limiting…
