    Hello everyone,

    This is a completely newb question. I haven't traded in a long time due to health issues and I'm considering coming back to the market. I was thinking about trading the CL. My question is: what is the amount of money I require to trade a single contract of CL? Is it the initial margin? According to my trading software, its about 2400.

    Edit: Are there any other futures you'd recommend that I start with since I'm just getting back into the market?
