  • Hi, guys, I am pretty new for ES, do you know if you can hold any shorts or longs overnight? or even several days? I am using the interactive brokers and have not used any margin money.
    • I am trading the ES mini futures
    • Margin requirements are around $6000 per contract if you hold overnight. So you need a minimum of $18,000 for 3 contracts. General rules for trading and good money management suggest to risk no more than 2% loss per trade. i.e. 50K account stops no more than $1000. Rule #1 good money management crucial, Rule #2 refer to #1.
    • THANKS, Bryan
