Hi Fat Tails,
I thought that for sp500b end of open outcry is 4.15 EST so 4:OO ESt end of intraday margin

Read the rule again, it was the earlier of ...... , and 3:45 is earlier than 4:00 PM.

You should check with Amp, but in general, overnight margin only comes into effect if you carry a position past the close of the cash session. If you close a position a few minutes before close (I believe it may be 15 minutes), and then re-enter the position when the new session starts, you should avoid overnight margins.


Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

If your broker is Mirus then overnight margins only apply if you carry a position during the daily shut down. For the ES that is 3:15-3:30pm Central. For 6E the shut down with overnight requirements is 4-5pm Central. For TF it is 5-7pm Central.
