Trading with the Tims:

How do you get over the pattern day trader (PDT) rule? Should you get over it? Does it matter which broker you use?

Students ask me these questions all the time.

I don’t think there’s anything as controversial as the PDT rule in the trading world … Today I talk about what it really means and why. SPOILER: I don’t actually think it’s a bad thing.

In case you need a refresher, the PDT rule applies to all traders who have less than $25K in their accounts. It limits you to three day trades per rolling five-day period.

A lot of new traders complain about it. They think they should be able to trade as much as possible.

I’ll be honest … When I first started teaching, I thought the same thing. I thought it was un-American and unethical — the worst!

But after teaching for over 10 years, I actually think it’s the best rule possible.

I have five millionaire students and even more students earning six figures.* But I also have a ton of students who are struggling because they’re overtrading.

(*These results aren’t typical. Most traders lose money. All trading is risky. Never risk more than you can afford.)

I get it, you wanna earn. But first, you’ve gotta learn. You need patience. And the PDT rule forces you to be patient.

Remember: the PDT rule only applies to day trades. That’s where you enter and exit on the same trading day. You can have as many overnight trades as you want.

There are tons of plays that last overnight or longer … I’ll tell you about some of my favorite plays that I hold for three to four days.

Sure, I love a morning dip buy intraday trade. But these only work for the biggest gainers. Those don’t happen every day. There usually aren’t more than one or two per week. And that works just fine if you’re under the PDT.

Watch the video for some of my favorite setups — intraday, overnight, or longer … Focusing on mastering these patterns can help you become a stronger trader.

I just save up $30.000 and start daytrading next year with just $3000/5000 and able to trade free ( i'm almost 100% sure i'm not going over 3 trades a week anyway ) The other $25.000/27.000 will be in long term high quality dividend stocks. Going to risk just $25 to make atleast $50 on each trade in the beginning. It's not about the money when you start it's your knowledge thats need to grow first. After consistently profitable trading i scale up to $50 risk to make $100 then $75 to make $150. Can't wait to start! 🙂

I overtrade 🙁 My worst week was the week I found out that the PDT rule doesn't apply to cash accounts (which I have). Honestly though I'm still learning and honing the craft.
