How many trades can a day trader make in a day?

Depending on the strategy employed, many day traders make tens to hundreds of trades per day, on average. With algorithmic and high-frequency trading (HFT) systems available, some day traders can make tens of thousands of individual trades in a single day (with the help of computers). To be labeled a pattern trader by your broker, however, regulators state that you need only to make four day trades over the course of five business days.
