TT Margin Policy


#1

Optimus Futures:

Thank you for all the support your staff has provided. The TT platform was the right choice for a web-based platform. But, I ran into issues when we were setting up the contracts for trading. I need to specify contracts per each commodity, and then the total number of contracts that I am allowed to hold in total. Since I do hold my positions overnight, I would need to constantly calculate the max number of contracts instead of relying on the margins that are provided by the CME.

To further my point: I understand the need to specify clip sizes because different contacts may have different liquidity, Emini S&P versus Gold, etc.
But when a diversified portfolio trader wants to hold overnight, he should not be limited to the max number of total positions and instead just rely on the CME margins.
