Questions about intraday Bond Futures trading

Discussion in 'Financial Futures' started by Robertwiz, Nov 20, 2011.

  1. Hello,

    I am thinking about getting into intraday futures trading and am trying to decide between Es and the 30 year bond, or maybe the 10 year note. My questions are:

    1. Which interest rate futures contract do you think offers the best intraday trends and risk-reward ratio?

    2. What is the slippage on the 30 year bond and 10 year note?

    3. What level of intraday margin is required to trade bond or note futures? In other words, what is the day trading margin?

    4. Are there any particulary good demos that you would suggest?

    I would tremendously appreciate any assistance.
