A Pattern Day Trader is someone who makes 4 or more day trades in a rolling 5 business day period. Also, if you undertake 4 or more day trades and your account value is less than $25,000, your account could be restricted from trading (as that would be considered a violation of the pattern day trading requirement). If you intend to day trade and do so often, it's recommended that you maintain a total balance in your account of at least $25,000.

Gotrade is implementing a protection to prevent your account from getting restricted by limiting day trades to maximum of 3 trades over a rolling 5 business day period
