How does the SEC day trading rule affect Canadians?
Since IB U.S. securities and options trades are cleared in the US, the SEC pattern day trading rules are applicable. If you effect 4 stock or equity option “day trades” on a US exchange within a 5 business day period, you will be designated as a “pattern day trader”. The “pattern day trader” designation will require that you maintain a minimum of $25,000 (US dollars) to continue trading. For more information, please click here.
