Overnight Mini NQ Margins

Discussion in 'Trading' started by macattack, Mar 24, 2008.

  1. My broker says $500 for daytrading margin, something like $3,250 for overnight.

    When does overnight happen?

    What if I buy now and sell in an hour?
    What if I buy at 2am and sell at 5am?

    Which margin applies?

    The overnight does. Daytrade margin is during when the equity markets are opened (9:30am-4:00pm EST).
