My first post to this forum, after 20 hours 36 views no replies???
To simple ….. dumb question … to wordy …. or no one knows because they all have margin accounts???

Trading stock in a CASH account technical detail Regulation T question. I am intentionally leaving out what if’s related to variations in stock price and fees, assume all trades are even money.

CASH Account:
I buy $10,000 of stock ABC with unsettled funds on Monday, selling the stock before Thursday is considered free riding. No brainer there not a problem with that.
BUT what if on Tuesday I have over $10,000 cash in same account from funds that settled from a sell of XYZ stock FROM THE PREVIOUS Thursday.

1. Can I sell ABC stock on Tuesday instead of Thursday?

Take the same scenario as above except both stocks are ABC stock.

2. Can I sell ABC stock on Tuesday instead of Thursday?

Assuming the answer to both questions 1 and 2 is yes and I have a $30,000 CASH account.

3. Can I make one $10,000 buy sell every day?

4. Can I make 2 $5000 buy sells every day, 3 $3333.33 buy sells ect.?

I am looking for two angles for these questions, here an example of what I mean by that.

Legally per the regulations “Yes” “No” “depends on how good your attorney is”

Brokerage firm dependant “most firms Yes” “most firms No” “Very hit and miss, firm dependant”
