FDAX Day Trade Margin is $2500...

I am sim trading with NinjaTrader, and I make huge profits trading FDAX that it is almost to good to be true. I started with $1k sim account and i was able to grow it to $15k in just a week with 82% winning trades. Would that be possible in real life? Or the market feeds of simulation are unrealistic?

Yep, only in SIM because it is impossible in real life!
AMP Futures requires $2500 for FDAX Day Trade Margin and $25,000 for Maintenance Margin if holding it overnight.
I couldn't afford to trade FDAX but used its direction to trade ES from 2amEST German Open until 11:30amEST Close... in the past. Now, I only trade ES in premarket and after NYSE open with OFA-Auction Dashboard.
