E-Mini Day Trading Margins

We understand that e-mini day traders need flexible margin requirements compared to position traders who are required to have exchange minimum margins.

Our standard day trading margins for all futures contracts are 20% of initial margin requirements, which is one of the lowest E-Mini day trading margins.

Based on your account size and broker/client relationship we can set your Day-Trading margins to be as low as $500 per contract on the Mini S&P Futures and $500 per contract on the Mini Nasdaq Futures. Minimum account size to qualify for these rates is $5000.
