I have a margin account, why didn't my day-trade buying power increase immediately after I liquidated a position?

With a margin account, if you open a position in-traday first and then liquidate an overnight position, your overnight buying power will go up, but your day trading buying power will not go up until the next business day.

For applying for margin you should have a clear understanding of the rules and potential risks associated with margin, such as the pattern day trading rule, day-trading buying power versus overnight buying power, and margin calls. Margin trading increases the risk of loss and includes the possibility of a forced sale if account equity drops below required levels.
