Do I have to trade every day during my test period?
No you can take days off you just need a minimum of 10 days with trades but they do not need to be sequential and can be spread out over time. You can take ten days, ten weeks, or ten months. There is not a minimum timeframe you must qualify in. Recurring payments are every 30 days for as long as you need the Evaluation account. You can reset the account as many times as you need. But you must have traded at least a minimum of ten days to qualify, no matter how long it takes you overall to qualify.
