Good Faith Violation

The good faith rule indicates that you can’t do an operation with money that is not yet yours, that has not reached your property.

The first is to remember that when you sell a position, the exchange takes 2 business days to convert those liquidated funds into available funds, and they are considered as a closed transaction.

Sometimes, when you sell some position, you’ll have the cash available at the next day or sometimes even immediately, and there is no problem with it being used to buy another security, but what shouldn’t be done is to sell that security immediately or before the money arrives, until waiting for the two days of the previous sale :)

Not complying with this rule can cause the account to be blocked, suspended or in repetitive cases, closed.
