Learning and profitable, but questions for next steps

  1. Hi, I just recently got into day trading as a way to beat the returns on my weak 1% online savings account.

    I've been using Charles Schwab and I am up around 10% so far. Today I ran into the Pattern day trader limit and I won't have 25k in my account for a few more months at least. I was thinking of opening an account at interactive brokers....

    Can anyone tell me the best brokerage for low 5 figures and the best way around the pattern day trader limitations? I'm realizing I have more to learn than I thought.
