Margin Account Day Trading question....

So I heard cash accounts can do unlimited Day Trades as long as it’s settled cash.
I have a margin account, but can I do day trades safetly while still making sure to use settled cash? I know it has the DTBP and ONBP amounts. But I’m just wondering if I can go passed the 0 day trades left counter if I still have positive Day Trade Buying Power. Right now I’m [0,1,1,2,3] with a caution risk level.
I do not have 25k in equity either. So would I have to turn it into a Cash account to make sure I’m safe against the GFP?

Why does Robinhood warn me about day trading when my account is not a margin account?

Title says all. Not even enrolled in Gold. IIRC pattern day trader regulation only applies to margin account.
Edit: Not that I'm trying to earn money day trading. I'm just worried if RH will lock my account if I make a mistake.

Day Trading: Margin 25k account

Pretty sure I know the answer ... but is the day trade buying power limit .. per trade or per day? Can I day trade 40k unlimited times a day or only up to the dollar amount specified in my day trade limit?
I decided to stick it out in RH until I recouped the pre market loss that made me want to cry lol but now I'm about 1k shy of 25k and I am trying to decide if I stay at RH For the cash management or switch to webull for the high DT buying power and day trade limits.
Thanks for your feedback

If my account says I’m not eligible for Margin Trading, does that mean I can day trade freely without the PDT rule?

Day trading on Margin Account. Any potential issues in the longer run with the tax dept?

Sorry if this is a noob question but I read all possible resources online/personal finance sites but could not get a satisfactory answer.
I have been doing some day trading on my margin account for over a year now. Not every day but few trades in a week or sometimes even just a few trades in a month. I have made some nominal profits.
I reported capital gains in my returns (took the help of a CPA in calculating the ACB value and calculation of taxes on capital gains). It was nominal.
My question is if I continue to do day trading and maybe increase the frequency of trades, can it create issues for me in the future with the tax dept? I will make sure to report all capital gains correctly. Will a large number of trades attract any undue attention. I trade a few thousand in day trading ~15k CAD at a time.
Can the CRA raise any objection seeing the volume of day trading? I believe mine is still very small to more experienced traders/professional. But just wanted to make sure that these small gains do not unnecessarily result in issues in the longer run.
And yes. I do not day trade on TFSA/RRSP accounts. Only the margin account.
I would be very grateful if the more experienced folks on this amazing subreddit share their opinion/advice!
Thanks a ton!

Does the Pattern Day Trading rule not apply to those using a cash account without margin?

So if I have $10k in a cash account without margin, I get unlimited day trades?

Can you sell your positions the next trading day with a margin account?

I’ve been trying to get a margin account for 3 weeks, I have respected the t+2 rule for unsettled and have over 2k and every thing else’s is good and check, but after 3 days of holding the settled cash I still can’t upgrade my account because it says it hasn’t passed 2 days. If I had a margin account I would have mas bank. There’s was times where I was up 2,700% on a option the next trading day but since I can’t sell because I would get a GFV, after that I took a 50% loss and my portfolio plummeted

Can I get flagged if a day-trade with a non-margin account?

Let's say I have a regular, non-margin account and on the same day I buy-sell 6 stocks. The stocks wouldn't be bought from the proceeds of each sale, but from the money I've deposited. Would that flag me as a day trader?
Example: I have $20K in my account. I buy GN[redacted] for $2000 and then sell it 5 minutes later for $2500. Then I buy another stock and sell it 10 mins later... repeat until I've spent a total of $20K on buying.
The confirmation for the shares I've sold will arrive in T+2 so I won't trade with those $20K for the next 2 days.
That should be ok, right?

Cash account help! So on TD I applied to change my account to cash only so on TOS I can make unlimited day options trades with settled funds... why does it say standard cash but margin enabled? Does it still need time to apply?

I posted a picture on here last night asking to verify if I had a cash or margin account. If I have a cash account, then why does it say that I only have 3 day trades left on the Thinkorswim app? Thank you

Fidelity Cash Account (Non Margin) - Unlimited Day Trades Allowed?

What the fuck?
I made like 30-40 day trades in my cash account (non margin) in the past 2 days due to this market chaos and nobody gave me an account ban or restriction or anything.
Does fidelity not give a fuck or something?
This is supposed to be a good faith violation and they are only supposed to allow 3 in a 90 day rolling window BUT I MADE 40 VIOLATIONS
Why am I not restricted or something? Why has someone not called me?
38 day trades to be exact.
(NON MARGIN). Just cash account.
Account value with them is much less than $25k.
Every single trade was with UNSETTLED CASH from the previous trade

Cash vs Margin account for day trading on IB?

Newbie here, been "day trading" (sort of) on Robinhood for the past few weeks. Ran into the issue of being marked as PDT and blocked from selling certain stocks I had recently purchased.
-I am starting with a small account balance of $1.5-2k
-I am trying to save as much in fees as possible to keep my daily percentage gains high (reason why I decided on IB as my new broker)
-I would like to have account deposits/withdrawals go thru as quickly as possible (preferably the same day I deposit)
-(Not as important as the above requirements) Would like to have the option of trading options (pun intended)
It would be better to go with a cash account right? Or are there benefits to day trading with a small balance margin account that I'm not seeing? Thanks in advance for the advice!

Question regarding tax on day trading in my margins account

Using a throwaway account as I don't want any financial information linked to my main account.
I started day trading last year, but due to the increased volatility this year, I have been able to make a good return.
My question is regarding my tax bill. I am making 55000 a year for my day job. Would my day trading profit count as simple capital gain tax or a business tax that I have read somewhere here? Is there anyway to mitigate the amount of the taxes I am about to pay?

day trading, margin account, freeriding

New to day trading, been paper trading for ~1 month and plan to continue for 2-3 months before trying with real money.
Please help me understand trading restrictions in a margin account.
Hypothetical, I have $30,000 in a margin account.
Perhaps I haven't phrased my search correctly on google, but I'm trying to figure out how margin accounts affect settlement date issues of cash accounts. Do I have to wait for the cash portion of my trades to settle before I use the funds? So if I make one of the $10,000 day trades mentioned above with $5,000 cash and $5,000 margin, do I have to wait for the trade to settle before i can use my $5,000 cash for another trade?

Looking to start an account specifically for margin trading, day trading, and all the things I shouldnt be doing. What platform supports this best?

I have an FA, I've been watching his buys and sells in my IRA and CMA. Interesting.... but I think I'm ready to lose $100 or something. I hear Robinhood is not ACTUALLY day trading? Is that true?
My actual portfolio doesn't have trading enabled so I cant fuck myself over, but I'd happily open a new one. I was planning on opening a vanguard, but can you day trade on that?

a) The number of day trades is more than 6% of the total trades in the margin account during the same five-day period. Therefore, if an individual executes four day trades within one week and executes fewer than 67 other types of trades (to satisfy the 6% rule), he or she will be classified as a pattern day trader. When you open up an account at a broker for day trading, you have the option of choosing either a cash account or margin account.And when it comes to choosing a cash account or margin account, many people have questions about it, especially as a beginner in day trading.I had a friend ask about this on Twitter (follow me on Twitter by clicking here) so I've decided to make an article about it With a margin account you will be subject to the pattern day trading rule, which requires you to have a minimum of $25,000 in equity in your margin account if you place 4 day trades or more in a 5 day period. Time and tick is a method used to help calculate whether or not a day trade margin call should be issued against a margin account. With this method, only open positions are used to calculate a day trade margin call. For example, assume your account had a day trade buying power of $90,000. The buying power for a pattern day trader is four times the excess of the maintenance margin as of the closing of business of the previous day (say an account has $35,000 after the previous day's
