Looking for more leverage

Discussion in 'Prop Firms' started by rokafella, Jul 18, 2005.

  1. I want to trade my own money but looking for a futures firm/broker/prop/arcade that offers more leverage than the typical retail broker (ie... global, velocity, oec ...etc.).

    thanks in advance.

    Don't the brokers you mention already give pretty highly leveraged intraday margin requirements? 500 dollars for ES is 120X leverage, even buying stock you're only allowed 4X.

  3. Well that doesn't help me does it? Firm names only. I don't want this thread to become a psychoanalysis of my question.

    I hear some firms offer up to 50:1 but is this reserved only for prop traders?

    Oh my apologies, names only huh? well, there's Global, Velocity, basically the ones you mention, I just told you these firms give you 120X leverage, and you want more, but then you say some firms give you 50X, go ahead, blow your account, its not my money
