Do you have the FGBS intraday margin higher than initial margin on purpose ?

I wish you would give all margins in the contracts' base currencies : in that case EUR for EUR based contracts. Most of the time, it makes sense for the targeted audience, making it more practical, less confusing.

Our focus on lowering the day-trading margins means we need to consider easy and effective ways to monitor risk across multiple technologies and exchanges. By moving the day-trading margin to USD, we were able to lower the day-trading margins from 3450 Euros to $2500 on the FDAX. We understand it could be a bit easier for the customer if it was in Euros, but we had to balance that with the requests for lower margins. Same concept on the FGBS, as the consistency with FGBM allows for easier risk management.

We certainly want to consider all aspects to these requests so we appreciate the feedback.

Risk Disclosure: Futures and forex trading involves significant risk of loss and is not appropriate for everyone.
