Hi, I have what might be a naive question but I have been testing out a trading system that is day trading the EMini S&P. I currently have $50k in the account and trading 10 contracts consistently. My understanding is that my Equity to Margin ratio is therefore 8%. ($1257 X $50 X 10 Contracts) / ($50,000 investment in FCM account). Is this correct in figuring out my Equity to margin ratio? My second question is if we plan to market this program as a CTA, would this low of an equity to margin ratio be very worrisome/non starter for many retail/institutional investors even with an attractive track record? Any thoughts on this would be great.
