What is the pattern day trading?

A day trading pattern (PDT) is someone who makes four (4) or more day trades in a five business day period. FINRA (Financial Industry Regulation Authority) defines this pattern, and subjects traders who exhibit this day trading pattern to PDT restrictions.

Day trading is a trading strategy where you buy and sell (or sell and buy) the same security on the same day.
