I have not traded Eurex futures for a long time. I did in the past when we all had modems and dialup. In those days, a tiny account and DAX futures just was not a viable combination for survival. Perhaps things have changed.

You might want to consider spending the time to figure out if you really have an edge. That is going to take some time. Unless you have a very systematic approach, it will be very difficult to separate skill and luck. Your last post was terrifying in the sense that what you describe ends badly for most people. Start very conservatively. Futures might not be the best learning tool.

You can use CFD's with IB UK and that might be a better way to start. IB manages their CFD trading differently than most brokers and better. That might be a good way to get going. You can then move to the futures contract once you are comfortable without having to change broker.
