  1. I got a message from IB, no details provided though.
  2. IB provided the link to the CME notice - read the notice.
  3. All based on SPAN... 2 sessions in the last month with > 100 points of swing will likely result in new initial margins of $5k
  4. abxs


    do you happen to know what would cause a revision of margins to the downside?
  5. they are racist?
  6. Decreasing volatility, which should come about in November and December. October, historically, is an "ugly" month for the market. We'll see. :cool:
  7. The CBOT and CME?.......Heck ya! It's a white man's world there. Be proud to be a member of the Irish/Italian/Israeli Trading Mafia! :cool:
