    You guys going to add CAD/JPY?

    When you get a chance list the new crosses. Margin for SEK is at 3.33%!! Why so high?

    Now all you need is to allow us to pull up daily charts!

    CAD/JPY: I'm surprised it isnt already there. will add.

    MXN, SEK: coming soon. A few weeks.

    SEK margin: it is high, but not inappropriately so. Look at the GLOBEX rates relative to other currencies.

    HKD margin: in theory, HKD is tied to USD so empirical volatility is miniscule. But there is (IMO) a bimodal distribution for prices where the second probability point is realized if the chinese govt revalue HKD for any reason. The risk on any given day is small but we actually dont want people playing that possibility against us (which is effectively happens when someone leverages themselves into a large position knowing they will try to walk away if it goes south on them)
