Here is something new for me from IB- i trade my wife account and every time i call to ask something-they refuse to talk to me(people who work in "press zero" area. ok..fine, at same time-technical support stuff can tell you everything.. finally, we did open joint account and tranfer some money from my wife account to joint. after this transaction her account was below 25K and it was blocked, because it fall under pattern day trader category. wow.. i did trade during this week, then yesterday after market close we just trasfer some money from one account to another. is this make her a daytrader? where can i read those rules and regulations? as far as i remember-there is no single word about this situation.. looks like we have no choice, but close this account and open another one again? or wire money back and forth..oh.. What do you think?
