    which one, don't spare the detail
  3. I bought a QLGC February at $33.25
    Then I sold a QLGC March at $33.60

    So now I'm market neutral with a profit of $32, and maintenance margin of $170 total for the pair

    Really not sure what to do next, but being market neutral gives me the luxury of doing nothing, and it's liberating!

    same with emini, no rule
  10. Yup. But of course, e-mini is e-mini. With SSF we can trade any specific stock, with no stinkin PDT rule!

    With my current account level also I could not trade more than one e-mini. No scaling in and out, and no "market neutral" strategy.
