Hey everyone,

QC is such an amazing community! In just 2 weeks of being here, I've learnt & discovered so much! Cheers to that! Hopefully, I would be able to share my in-development strategies soon!

If I was planning to go live with a long-short hedge strategy which tries to trade many symbols on a daily basis (avg holding period of 5-30 days) - would I need to lookout for the pattern day trader rule (in USA)? Would that mean the algo needs to start with min $25k?

Also, are there any special rules related to leverage when I need to go short on a symbol?

Thanks a bunch!
