    It only applies to US stock brokers. It does not apply to US futures brokers. This is a US rule, so it only applies to the US. – Flux Nov 17 '20 at 17:52
  • So if my broker is located in UK but the broker trading US stocks the PDT can be not apply? – leonidas efrem Nov 17 '20 at 18:00

    If your stock broker is regulated by FINRA, you will be subject to PDT rules. – Flux Nov 17 '20 at 18:06

The pattern day trader rule is a U.S. regulation established by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). It applies to margin accounts with brokers in the U.S. Offshore brokers are not subject to SEC and FINRA rules.
