    Hey everyone,

    I am wondering if anyone knows the way to achieve the greatest leverage on the s&p. options on the S&P or options on the S&P futures? also, numerically , at kind of leverage can each get me?

    The reason I ask is that I am currently devolping a strategy that uses a very very small percentage(less than 1% of a portfolio) and leverages it as much as possible to an index.

    any help would be greatly appreciated. have a good one.

    do some research. your leverage depends on your situation, clearing firm etc. You sound pretty new. I would think trying tomaximize leverage should be the absolute LAST!!!!!!! (I can't emphasize that enough) thing that you should do.
