What is the minimum to open an account?
Futures accounts should only be funded with the risk capital portion of your investment portfolio. Therefore we do not encourage you to violate the risk capital rule when tying to meet a predefined minimum. Keep in mind, in order to trade you must meet certain margin requirements set by the exchanges and day trading margins set by the brokerage firm. As an example, you may qualify for a day trading account which allows you to fund with as little as $3,000 - depending on the market you would like to trade.
What are your day trade margins?
It is true that day trade margins can be significantly less than exchange minimum over night margins. Please keep in mind, that by definition, the lower your day trade margin the more leverage you are using. This magnifies the risk and the reward potential of your trades. Alternatively, lower margins allow you to use your capital in a more efficient manner. As an example day trade margins on the E-mini S&P 500 can be as low as $500 per contract.
