With the economy in a near stalled state, and with Downtown New York almost decimated, do we really need the SECs "Pattern Day Trader" Rule? Aren't things bad enough as it is with very little volume and volatility? I think its time to speak up against the SEC and try to get this rule reversed. Some of the most brightest and accomplished organizations and people in the World Trade Center with regards to economics are in state of collapse or retardation. The WTC incident will most likely have an effect on the economy and trading, and the PDT rule is being materialized in the worst time ever conceivable. What kind of financial markets will there be with no one left to participate? At 9 AM, the WTC complex is occupied by approx. 40-50 thousand people. There is no data as to how many people have died, or are beyond the scope of returning to a normal life. No one knows the implication of this yet and its effect on trading and the economy at large. In light of this and everything else, the PDT rule is ridiculous and makes no sense. Isnt there something we can do about it?
