SPX500 Trading Long or Short

I’m looking for general trade related info to help buy or sell the S&P.

Assuming no extra leverage (beside normal futures related margin trading of a single contract.)

  1. What is the margin requirement please. Is there a second margin required as with the CME or does this platform automatically exit the trade if trading account goes negative. Is the margin the same for shorts as longs.

  2. Can stops and targets be placed when taking a position. How can these be changed. Can this be done on screen?

Yes it can be selected up to 500:1 I believe. And it is automatic, no free margin = closed trade. It really is a great trading platform both desktop and mobile (iOS) app.

Simply set your stops when placing trade
