    Customers with accounts below $25k take a note what LightSpeed considers a day-trade:
    "The number of day trades is counted based on opening transactions.
    For example, if you buy 100 shares, then buy another 100 shares, and one hour later sell all 200 shares, this equates to two-day trades. "
    Other brokers would consider this as one day-trade. Such counting approach is a big disadvantage for non-pattern day traders who have only 3 day-trades per 5 days.

    What is that from and is there a question?

    We offer accounts starting at $10,000, but as those accounts can’t Actively trade, I would say our focus is on active traders, typically $30,000 or more.

    Yes, it makes sense to focus on $25k+ accounts since PDT day-trade limitation. Just saying that running a promo catered towards new sub $25k accounts AND having unfavorable day-trade counting method makes hard situations even harder for them.

    The reason why we came up with the Fund4Less promotion is that we get a large number of traders that apply for a new account, but either do not have $25,000 right now or do not expect to soon, but want to use Lightspeed Trader. Since our DMA software requires $25,000 to start, we have rejected a large number of accounts. The Promotion removes the cost of Lightspeed Trader for 90 days after approval, for accounts that fund with and stay over $10,000. This give the trader an opportunity to test the software and just pay for market data. Many are choosing a CASH account which has no PDT requirement and options settle in 1 day. Or, it gives them a chance to try us with less, then if happy, mve over the balance of their trading account.
