Welcome back everyone to The Freedom Grind Investors Blog! I am currently day trading a small account with Interactive Brokers with several benchmarks in mind. My first benchmark is 5k! My current portfolio balance is $4,300 so I don’t have much further to go for that goal. My starting balance was $2200.
The ultimate goal is to reach 25K in order to be above the PDT or Pattern Day Trading Rule. This is a regulation that prevents U.S citizens from day trading freely if they are below 25K! It makes no sense honestly but unfortunately, those of us that are small money Day Traders have to work within those boundaries.
The image above is my current Equity Curve with interactive brokers. My strategy with this account so far has had a very high Win/Loss ratio and has allowed me to double the account in a little less than a month. I am only trading Short side trades and will most likely not get into any long positions for the foreseeable future.
One thing I do want to mention is the Products and Services Tab in the Dropdown Menu at the top of the website! Once I surpass the 25K benchmark, I will be teaching this strategy and it will become accessible in that Tab! If any of you are interested in learning a highly profitable trading strategy, comment in the comments section. This will not be a free service, but all information in this blog as well as my YouYube channel will be a free resource for all of you!
