Span margin for intermarket spreading

Discussion in 'Trading' started by DarthSidious, Mar 2, 2012.

  1. For equity futures actually. My broker, Velocity Futures provides me the margin requirements for specific queries: "If I sell x of this and buy y of that, what is my margin?" Is there someplace in the web where I can figure this out for myself? CME only.

    You can buy PC SPAN from cme for $500. Very complicated though.

    Can you do check margin on IB TWS for a combo order?
  4. Nice. I have to pay cme to figure out my margin? What a deal! Yes, I do a have an IB account as well, but I am queasy with IB - god only knows what they do to figure out margin. I suppose I can put on paper trades in TWS and check margin before I do them in VF, but was looking for a cleaner option. I mean, how hard can it be? A simple webpage where I construct the portfolio and it tells me the current margin? Easy, right? Not!
