Has anyone heard of a broker that offers reduced margin requirements when doing futures pairs or spreads? I wanted to go long /RBH7 (RBOB Gas) and Short /CLH7 without having to pay full margin on both sides. I ended up putting the trade on using ETF's but really missed out on the leverage of futures. Thanks you any help.

We offer exchange minimum margins for outrights and future spreads.

The current outright margin for crude is $2640 and for RBOB is $4070 ( as of Sept. 5th 2017)
the margin for the spread is: $3137

We have a built in margin calculator in our free platform E-Futures Int'l
