What Happens When Your Pattern Day Trader Account Goes Below Minimum Equity Requirement
Wed, 13 Jan 2016 17:32:07 +0000

I didn't bother to call E-Trade to convert my account back to a non-day trading account. I did't know if that was possible or not. But this week, I withdrew some money, so my account is below the $25000 minimum. Today, I got the following account alert:

"You have a Minimum Equity Call

The net account value in your pattern day trading account has fallen below $25,000, and a minimum equity call has been issued for the account. FINRA Rule 4210 requires that pattern day traders maintain a minimum account balance of $25,000.

Call Information

Account ending in: XXXX-0882
Equity call deadline: Immediately

You can meet this call in either of these two ways:

By depositing additional funds and/or securities into your account
By your account equity rising above $25,000 due to market appreciation or trading.

Your account will be restricted to trading 1x house excess for 90 days or until the call is met. Please note that if you execute a day trade while this call is in effect, FINRA regulations require that we further restrict your account to settled, cash-only transactions.

If you have questions or need assistance, please call us anytime at 1-800-ETRADE-1 (1-800-387-2331) or send us a Secure Message."

Knock Knock (2015)
Sat, 26 Dec 2015 01:51:58 +0000

This movie is entertaining and fun to watch. But the ending doesn't make sense at all. It's like the writers tried too hard to put a irrelevant twist at the end, just to have a twist in the movie. Letting Evan (Keanu Reeves) live is the worst ending ever. After all, they killed an innocent man during the movie without a bit of a tear. Then they let their "claimed" villain go at the end?

An ending where they kill Evan is realistic and better than the current ending. I'll even live with an ending where his wife and kids come back to save him, even though they weren't even a part of the plot. But the ending where the psychotic girls, Genesis and Bel (Lorenza Izzo and Ana de Armas), let him go... ridiculous.

It's like Eli Roth is trying to provide a lesson about cheating to school kids. But, come on! Would a man at the borderline death really care what gets posted to his Facebook account when he just got out of the boiling pot?

We can all imagine the consequence of cheating, we don't need two psychotic girls to understand it. But we do want a realistic and entertaining movie. This movie hit the entertaining cord, but not the realistic one.

E-Trade Web Interface Will Protect You From Hard to Borrow Short
Fri, 11 Dec 2015 23:30:24 +0000

I was playing around some more. But this time with the symbol 'X'. Instead of placing a limit order, I decided to place a market order. I got the following message:

"This security is considered Hard to Borrow. Only limit orders are accepted for sell short orders in this security."
