How Much Does It Cost To Trade 1 Ten Year Note Contract?

Only $1,485. That means for roughly every $1,500 you have you can trade 1 contract. So if you have a $15,000 account you *could* trade ten contracts. Position sizing is obviously a personal decision. The other contract we trade, the eMini S&P500 Futures contract, has an initial margin of $5,060 but most brokers allow you to day trade for only 25% of that amount or only $1,265. So for $5,000 you can essentially trade four contracts or all four of our eMini algos in our Active Elite Package at once! Remember futures have no pattern day trader rule and they have tax advantages!
