Unfortunately I only get to make three round-trip trades next week. However, I am wondering about the specifics of this rule and how IB interprets it. If I purchase 100 shares of QQQ, and then add another 100 shares, and then add another 100 shares and then sell 300 shares, is that considered "1" round-trip daytrade? My system involves position phasing and I just can't do that very well with ES (I'm not trading two contracts on 5k -- no way). So, is this considered one of my three trades?
