    I just noticed on thursday and friday during the day the margin on ES was 3k something during regular hours and 6k (the normal it has been) AH.

    I don't see anything official on the IB website about this change. Has anyone noticed this?

    Also, seemed like there were no special intraday margins on CL or ZB/ZN etc.

    any info would be great

    Thanks!

  4. Yes, in a word. About $3.5k to trade ES and YM again.

    Too bad for IB I already defected to a low daytrade margin broker. (I take back anything negative I said about NinjaTrader in the past!).
