I have a question about just how long it takes before your account gets tagged as a pattern day trader account. Let me explain. I just started trading some of my sisters money from her datek account. She only has a few thousand dollars in it but she wanted me to see if I could make her some extra money. She did not want to put her money in my account so I told her that I would just trade it off and on from her datek account. After 2 weeks of decent trading (3-5 trades per day, all "cash only") the account is still not considered a pattern day trader account. My question is, does anyone know how long it takes before it will become a pattern day trading account? I was also wondering if I was to stop trading with this account right now if sometime down the road it would just pop up as a pattern day trader account. Like maybe it just takes a while for datek to realize the amount of trades and liable it as such. Does anyone know how long I can trade like this before they liable the account PDT? Or if they may just liable the account PDT sometime down the road due to the number of trades that I have already made with the account? Just looking for quick answers. Thanks.
