Question about swing accounts...

  1. Hi. I'm looking to open a swing account. Which place do you think is the best place to do so?

    As I understand it, there's a $25K minimum for pattern day trading accounts? If so, do these places offer 4:1 buying power rates? For instance, could I contribute $6250 and receive $25K BP? Or, do I need to contribute the entire $25K?

    Which platforms do you guys think are the best, easiest to use, and cheapest?

    If someone has any links that they think might be helpful, please share. I did take the time to search and found some very helpful information, but couldn't answer all of my questions.
