Are there any considerations on the amount of trading that I can do in the account?
Yes, both cash and margin accounts have some trading restrictions based on the amount of funds in the account and the frequency with which these funds are used. These rules are set by the Federal Reserve, the SEC and FINRA. These rules apply to all customers at all industry firms. Regulation T governs the use of funds in a cash account and the Pattern Day Trading rules dictate the frequency of trading in a margin account.
