The problem to apply PDT rules on stock options is so fundamentally and technically wrong enough to destroy the principles of this financial instrument. Since stock options have a very important component of time value as futures have, how can any rule restrict the freedom to go in and out a position. This is very clear in "Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Options" that no reasons like PDT rules should give liquidity risks. Before they can get earlier document changed, they should not make PDT rules effective on stock options. Another problem is that PDT rules is supposed to solve issues of margin transactions to protect brokers. It should not apply to non-marginable transactions like buying stock options. The rules does not work on stock options as they are supposed to, except NASD has other concerns for other interests which they didn't legally state in the process and the documents of passing the rules. Options traders are already in a risky business and cannot afford this kind of ridiculous rules to stack on their heads. I am writing my thinking and hope for your understanding. I know my English is awful. It would be more helpful for others here to understand me and write to NASD/SEC etc. as many times as possible, as often as possible. Thanks.
