Hi all. I am wondering if their have been any advances in ways around the pdt rule in the last few years? I really want to daytrade stocks but dont have anywhere near the 25k required. I wanna start real small just trading 100share lots as is often advised. I make around 50-100c per day papertrading with my own system and strict money managment. I always deduct about 5% of my pretend profits as people often say demos want you to win (although i haven't seen any evidence of that) I know of alliance who let you daytrade with only a few k but their commissions are real bad and they have lots of hidden charges. Are there any others? Are there any other ways around the rule? I would love to daytrade with IB but it looks like that wont be happening anytime soon.
