Hi i was wondering if somebody could advise me. I currently reside in the Republic of Ireland and have set up a tdameritrade account in the past month. I have originally created a cash account but since i started trading i have been introduced to the 3 day unsettled funds rule. I have since tried to apply for a margin account. I would like to make around 3 or 4 trades a week and am aware of not trying to become a pattern day trader.
My problem is that tdameritrade have come back to me today stating that because i am from the Republic of Ireland that i am not allowed upgrade to a margin account. Has anybody else come across something like this?
I know people who do have margin accounts but am not aware of what brokers they are using.
