    Fellow members:

    I have a market neutral strategy (trade indices and keeps trades overnight). Any suggestions which broker offers most leverage? I currently trade through IB and they offer 2x overnight.

    Thank you for your insights in advance.
  2. Isn't it 4 with IB?
    I think it's the SEC that determines the max leverage, possible for retail traders. If you want more you need to go to a prop shop (Bright, Echo, ...).
  3. Any broker will do as long as you qualify for portfolio margin.
