Re: Vanguard frequent trading restrictions for new ETFs

Hasn't been announced yet. Probably in August.

For Vanguard ETFs:
If you buy and sell the same Vanguard ETF in a Vanguard Brokerage Account more than 25 times in a 12-month period, you may be restricted from purchasing that Vanguard ETF through your Vanguard Brokerage Account for 60 days.
