$26,000 minimum is needed to make a living day trading or make a decent yearly side gig with my website…$1000 over the minimum $25,000 required to day trade…I make swings and day trades that range between a $12,000 investment to $180-$200K depending on my confidence on the formation…With $26,000 you have access to $52,000 in leverage as well…so I really consider I’m on pace to double my $72,000-$75,000 account to $150+ plus by year end, doubling a $26,000 account isn’t too bad…what confuses me is how people day trade with less than $25,000..I know there are shady websites overseas that try to bypass this day trading rule, but many of them have been shut down by the SEC (or a government entity). I can’t figure out how there are so many day traders out there trying to day trade their $1200 stimulus check on Robinhood…
