What You Need to Know About the Pattern Day Trader (PDT) Rule

Lightspeed customers can learn about the pattern day trader rule and how it impacts active traders.

Let’s be clear, this webinar is not about how to trade against the PDT rule, it is about how to cater your trading style to conform to the rules. The pattern day trader rule came into effect in 2001, and it states that if you’re going to day trade more than three times in a five business day rolling period, that you need to maintain a minimum balance, in your trading account, of at least $25,000 dollars.

During this webinar, we discussed:

  • The basic PDT rules and facts.
  • What the rule means for beginner traders.
  • Options for traders who do not meet the minimum funding requirement of $25,000.
  • And much more!
