Lower margin for DOW, but not others. Curious?

    Starting tomorrow night, YM gets a break, but the other 3 majors do not. Seems unusual to me. I suppose the others will follow soonish, when the trade war blows over.


    Now that I think about it, I think I recall an update 3ish years ago that had NQ rise but the others not. I should not be surprised.

  2. Learn about Dow Jones Index futures contracts, and obtain ... Like the other major benchmark index, the S&P 500 Index, the DJIA is ... Trading a stock market index directly is not an option for investors, but DJIA futures ... in the DJIA for less than $5,000 in a futures contract by margintrading the E-mini DJIA.

    Sounds logical, Overnight .For the same reason they raised margins on a good silver uptrend; with the DOW value/closing prices dropping, sounds logical. And i'm not a CME mind reader; but sounds like they are also bearish LOL. NOT a prediction, not a mind reader.:D:D, :D:D:D:D:D:D
