Some of you trade "longer time frames" - and have asked if we "allow" that. We have traders who keep all sorts of stuff. We want our traders to manage themselves as long as they are doing it within basic parameters. So don't be deterred by the daytrading term. A trader may trade 50 times during the day, and keep a few thousand shares in a pair or for a divident play, or just because they want to. Basic common sense and risk control always applies. The "swing trading" concept is often times better performed by those who are more investment conscious rather than wanting to spend time trading all day. That is fine, and we have made exceptions for the remote traders who wish to engage in this strategy.
