In the U.S. market file, “C” mo partial fills multiple orders count on getting branded as a pattern trader D? a “D” to trade is buying and selling the same security on the same d? to the negotiation ? n (even if you do not already know, you should not answer this question.) Assume that processing a series of purchases of particular value in tomorrow. He then sells the tarde.Compra – Buy – Buy – Sell? This count as one day trade? Year three? ? And while buying and selling? Partial orders filled? GraciasGracias StopSpending much.? Qu? if the purchases were ordered separately, but runs a sale? unique for the whole lot?

    My experience has been that a “trade” is considered to be the order ans all of its fills. In the attached link, the SEC makes it very clear that a pattern day-trader is supposed to be a real day-trader. Counting each fill would snare too many customers in the net.

    From Rule 2520:
    “The term “day[-]trading” means the purchasing and selling or the selling and purchasing of the same security on the same day in a margin account”

    “The term “pattern day trader” means any customer who executes four or more day trades within five business days. However, if the number of day trades is 6% or less of total trades for the five business day period, the customer will not be considered a pattern day trader”

    It’s pretty clear to me that to “execute” a trade. I place an order and get fills. The order and the fills are a “trade”. Now, if your two “buys” are based upon two separate orders, then the pattern you ask about would be two day trades.

    Further info:
    Interactiveborkers gives clear examples of day trades on their website. Another reason why I like that firm so much. Looks like your two buys and one sell example is just one day trade.
