Can I day trade in a cash account?

You can day trade with your settled funds in a cash account. However, due to the T+2 settlement rule in the cash account, frequent day trades in a cash account will easily trigger a Good Faith Violation (GFV), which will result in you only opening the positions when funds are all settled.
