General Trading information on PDT specifies that you are considered a pattern day trader if “your day trading activities are greater than 6 percent of your total trading activity for that same 5 day period”. From my calculation I am well below 6 percent in my day trade count relative to the total trading activity, but still getting PDT error.
Couple of questions is
Does Alpaca take 6 percent into calculation for PDT protection?
If so, is there a simple way to see whether I am below 6 percent or not? I see the count in Account → Balances page, but I don’t see the total number of trades within the same period.
Thanks for any pointer on this.
