Other than the obvious answer of "don't day trade" what ways can I avoid being labeled a pattern day trader.
I've read the rules for when the label is triggered but I'm wondering about some real experiences and interpretation of the rule because it's got a lot of conditions.
For example will I be labeled a day trader if:
If I do three day trades every week in a margin account but never more than 3 in a week with no other trading activity on the account.
I do 10 day trades in 2 days in a non-margin.
I have 10 day trades in 5 days but in the same time I've closed 100 open positions that were open prior and open 100 new positions that remain open after. (day trades < 6% of volume) In a margin account? Not in a margin account?
There are a lot of variations, just trying to get an idea as to what the limits are and how to avoid them.
