Those that are daytrading, how much do you suggest having in your account? I see people trading thousands of shares a day , how much money do you guys have in your accounts? I mean if you have 50K in your account and if you make a trade worth 30,000 ($30.00 stock * 1000 shares) and you get in and out. I thought you could only then trade the 20,000 left in your account because the 30,000 in the previous trade would then need to clear before you could use the money. Confused about that? So, if you have a 50k account, how much can you trade with margin? Thanks.
