Has anyone been trading natural gas futures? NG

They appear to be fairly liquid. The day trading margin is high at $2000 with mirus.

Has anyone seen lower? I currently trade CL and 6E. Looking for an additional volatile, liquid market.

Natural gas is a great one to trade.
Those higher margins are probably a good thing!
2.3k for thinkorswim. That obviously covers overnight margin as well.
Good luck.

I also trade NG, but through Interactive Brokers.
2600$ initial margin and 2080$ maintenance margin, both intraday and overnight.

I like the instrument and it is quite liquid, never had a problem with my fills.
