Where can I paper trade with portfolio margin instead of reg-t

  1. Hey guys,

    I am thinking about switching to portfolio margin, but I want to see how it would trades I would like to make would be treated vs. as how they are treated in reg-t. Is there anywhere when I can paper trade or just enter in trades and see how much money they would take up with portfolio margin?

    I've never seen that. I just turned on my TOS account in paper trading. It gave me $100K for trading. You can run the same paper trading and assume you can just play bigger with PM.

    You can also go to https://cpm.theocc.com/tims_online.htm, put in positions and see what PM haircut will be on a typical position.
