Hi,

I'd like to learn more about day trade call. I have day traded a number of times (buy and then one sell once in a day), but I believe by doing that only once per day, I have not exploit its full potential.

If I have \$5000 day trading power, which ones of the examples below will trigger a day trade call and which ones will not? These are the scenarios I am not sure will trigger a call, therefore I ask. Please bear with me, they are a bit cumbersome. Assume at the start of the day I have no stocks. Each example describes the trading activities in exact sequence within a day. For the ones that trigger a day trade call, please provide some explanation if you could. The account has balance over \$25000.

(I) If only one stock is involved:

(1)
Sell \$5000 of A

(2)
Sell \$5000 of A
Sell \$5000 of A

(3)
Sell \$5000 of A
Sell \$2500 of A

(4)
Sell \$2500 of A
Sell \$2500 of A

(5)
Sell \$2500 of A
Sell \$5000 of A

(6)
Sell \$2500 of A
Sell \$2500 of A

(7)
Sell \$2500 of A
Sell \$2500 of A
Sell \$2500 of A

(8) Is there such things as keeping the 1st buy for overnight, the rest as day trades?
Sell \$5000 of A
Sell \$5000 of A

(II) If 2 stocks are involved:

(21)
Sell \$5000 of A

(22)
Sell \$5000 of B

(23)
Sell \$2500 of A
Sell \$2500 of B

(24)
Sell \$5000 of A
Sell \$5000 of B

(25)
Sell \$5000 of A
Sell \$2500 of B

(26)
Sell \$2500 of B
Sell \$5000 of A

Bottom line, what is the formulae for deciding how much day trading power I have left after each trade?

Thanks a million!!

Yes 5K is my buying power. I think I made an error, by saying "trading power" initially, I really meant buying power. I think they might have different meaning in the stocks world.

Allow me to elaborate a little. Since I only have \$5k buying power, if I only do this in a day I will be fine:

Sell \$5000 of A

However, take the first example:
(1)
Sell \$5000 of A

Just before I try to execute the second "Buy \$5000 of A", I usually get a warning message like below:
