  1. I trade the Mini S&P and Dow (ES, YM). I am currently paying $750 per contract. Does anyone know of a brokerage that offers $500 per contract?
  2. Lucrum


    Pretty high commissions.

  3. The account margins are $750
  4. Futures' trading requires a "Performance Bond", it is not called margin!

    If there is that much of a difference to you between $500 vs $750, you are a ticking time-bomb.

    Meanwhile, I 'll toss you a bone so I have someone on the other side of my trades, try AMP or Mirus for LOW minimum capital.

    Mirus Futures is the it for you
  6. Infinity futures $500 a contract and i pay $5 round trip
  7. Performance Bond: The term is also used to denote a collateral deposit intended to secure a futures contract, commonly known as margin.
