Brexit Day 2 onwards: Trades
Day 2 of Brexit and onwards
I continued to day-trade LYG to learn more about day-trading and closed each day's position within 24 hours.
More important to the long-term health of my portfolio, I purchased Aviva, Prudential, and Legal & General at pretty good prices. This helped to lower the average purchase prices of these counters.
I also found out that for cash accounts, IBKR will only allow let you trade with settled cash. Meaning if you have $2k and buy and sell $2k on the same day, the amount you have to trade is $0 until the trades settle. The cautiousness of IBKR is actually a good thing.
