margin requirements in CSV format

Post by longmemory » Thu May 19, 2011 4:46 pm

If you use margin reqs and been trading for a while, most likely you have a way of keeping them up to date.

Since I am a new TBB use and looked into FuturesInfo.txt, some of the margin numbers seemed off. Finding this is not so easy, except in case of CME group. (Thankfully, someone is organized.)

Please find CME Group margin rates for EVERYTHING.
Also please find, Sonic Futures "popular" futures margin rates.

zipped, two files: CSV, Windows CRLF, UTF-8, no BOM

Search for articles authored by "LeapFrog" which contain the string

margin*

Also, if you have a Prime Broker, ask whether she can get you access to the FOW Tradedata Statix database. It seems pretty comprehensive.

Sluggo,

Thank you very much for your help.
My broker is helpful but does not seem to have FOW Trade Database.
Since I need to switch, I'll keep this in mind.
