Understood. Will give it some thought and try to attack it from the not so obvious angle.

Margin is based on SPAN ratios so you could calculate it exactly. I believe it's something like a 3rd deviation move on a daily basis. When you factor in a tick size of $25 per $1 move in the index that's like $25k. Yeah, that's just a little more than insane. Am I reading this right??
