Welcome to

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Luke I do compound. I just leave the extra margin in the account as required. Mirus intra day margins are pretty small so it doesn't take much in my account to cover the margins. I don't hold big overnight positions but I have enough to cover the occasional single contract runner after market hours.

Ok, but compaunding your account's capital will increase anyway...

Thank you for replying to the topic. I will need to check the ratings of the bank with which I will do business, first. BoA is leveraged in debt default up to their ears. However, they would likely not be allowed to fail should push come to shove. Brokers and bankers can speak out of both sides of their mouths. But at the end of the day, when bank creditors come to collect, your money is up for grabs.

I like the idea of only keeping enough in the account to cover margin and a couple of failed trades. Multiple brokers using separate bank accounts is also an option. Same trade but on separate accounts through separate brokers.

I just do not like the idea of sticking all of my apples in one basket.
