Hello, Ive taken several education classes and read may books on day trading. I have also done some swing trading ,sucessfully. I feel i am ready and would like to try day trading but come up short of the 25,000.00 needed to fund the account for a pattern day trader. Yes I am Young and poor. and Yes I am continally saving but it may take me another 6months -1year to have that money. My question is in the beginning were any of you able to fund your accounts in any legal and intresting ways. Any help and advice would be appreciated . Thanks.
