Cash account isn't subject to PDT, but you can only trade with settled cash. Cash usually takes 3 days to settle after a trade.

@dckeener - I see. So any profits I make in a trade wouldn't be able to be reinvested into other trades until it has settled. So indirectly my trading would be limited until the account has grown some anyway.

@Raylbc27 Thank you for the feedback! I really didn't expect anyone would read my posts yet, so pretty cool! Taking your comment into consideration.I chose eTrade solely because Tim recommended. That and interactive brokers, I believe he says. I'm not starting with the minimum on interactive so eTrade it is. What's been working for you? NBDR/KNOS are my own attempts at becoming self-sufficient in finding my own watch-list. Before I start trading I like to learn why my pics were poor ones or vice
