What I'm going to ask here is only IN THEORY. Say you have about $60,000 of your own money that you can trade with. And say you wanna trade the 30 year t-bond futures market. And you wanna go for one big score, get in at a particular price, hold it for a few ticks and get out. How would you go about MAXIMIZING your possible earning potential in this scenario? No holds barred, caution to the wind, you just wanna risk everything on one trade. I don't mean strategy, I just mean what acccount would you open in order to trade the most possible size? My IB account's margin is 2k per contract, so with 60k, i can only trade a 30 lot. $900 per tick. That's not enough. Would you try to raise a bunch of money, enough to trade a 1000 lot or something? How would you go about acquring the ability to trade the absolute maximum size and making the most money on one trade?
