    Thx. well, I suppose an English resource alternative to the Eurex home page would be helpful...but specific to IB, I'm wondering how the German bonds play compared to CBOT treasurys, which I exploit for gain exclusively, particularly enjoy the depth of market using 3rd party reporting. basically, does the GB trade as well on TW? also, I cannot seem to find margin info for any Eurex contracts...pls help?

    thx again

  4. The bunds are available on the TWS, but I have never traded them. I am sure you can get depth of market, but it doesn't seem to be updated in real time in the TWS (couple of seconds delay).

    The eurex website is pretty hopeless, but they do have an english version. If you do a web search for "eurex margins" you will get a lot of different broker sites that will give your current margins.

    Hope this helps.

    Initial Margin for the German Bund is E 1750, maintenance margin is E 1400.
