Hi all,
Just a quick question re intra-day initial margin with IB. Back in July of this year I was trading FTSE futures with IB and the intra-day margin per 1 lot was £1875-00 I believe. I checked recently and it was £1000-00 !!!! Am I looking at the right link on IB?
Also as part of my new trading strategy I am looking to trade the following instruments soon. If anyone out there trades them via IB would they be so kind as to letting me know what the intra-day rates are :-

FTSE
GILT
CAC day (not GLOBEX)
DAX
EUROSTOXX
IBEX
SMI

Many thanks
FTSEBOY

Easiest way to find out is to plug the symbols into tws, create an order for 1 contract (by pressing the bid or ask price) when you're flat on everything else, right click on the order line and go 'check margin'
