What are the requirements for opening a futures trading account?

What are the requirements for opening a futures trade account? The primary strategy are numerous, short term intraday trades - essentially a scalping strategy. Stop losses would be no more than 2% of the account. No margin trading. Would a person be required to have a minimum of 25k in their account? If that is a requirement and the account were less than 25k, would that person only be allowed 3 trades / 5 trading days before requiring 25k in the account?
