I'm required to hold positions for 30-days minimum. Anyone else trading with this kind of restriction? The way I've been managing is to try and become market-neutral after my pre-set loss amount gets triggered. With non-leveraged ETFs, I just take the inverse position with margin. With stocks, I synthesize a portfolio with a negative beta of what my current portfolio is. The problem here is that my capital invested * 2 gets locked up for 30 days. If it's on margin, then I'm paying the margin interest rates. If another opportunity rolls around, I can't take advantage of it until the 30 day period is over. I could also buy options, but being an inexperienced options trader, I am somewhat hesitant. What's the correct way to do this, and can someone maybe give me a simple example?
