Required Day Trading margin

to trade the CT, S, ZW, ZC, ZS , LB, LE, OJ, etc...

I haven't traded in these types of commodities yet, but I am interested in them, and have recently been looking at their charts via different timeframes.

Can someone please tell me what the required Day trade margin(s) are to trade these various Commodities , as well as what each .01 , ,10 , $1 move in the various commodities, equates to, in terms of profit/loss ?
Example, a 1 tick move on the ES = $12.50 , so what would a 1 tick ( .10 cent move in Cotton be worth ) to me as a trader, trading cotton ( CT ) ?

Thanks much for the help

P.S. If someone has a Link to a site that simplifies and breaks down what I'm looking for, please post/attatch it.
I really appreciate it
