Hi John,

I just started trading ES a couple of months ago and this is what I've figured out so far.

1 - Your options for getting setup in Canada on NinjaTrader is very limited. You can use Interactive Brokers which has CDN based accounts but requires a $10K min investment and about $2,800 to trade an ES contract or you can do what I did, setup an account with Global Futures (min investment of $1K) and they only require $500 to take a ES contract. !

That is quite strange. I had to close down my account at Global Futures as RGC was no longer able to service Canadian accounts. What clearing firm do you go through if you are still at Global?
