  1. Say you have 140,000 that you would like to be long is the market.

    Which is a better suggestion? buy $140,000 of SPY (the index future that tracks the S&P)

    or... because the interest rate of holding the index futures is ~ 2.8 to 3.5%, buy 2 contracts of the ES, and get 5.15% interest paid from IB?
