Thanks @GFIs1 for sharing these quite impressive results !

...And IMO the outcome of 2013 has to be rated even higher compared to 2012, since market conditions have been tougher and more challenging compared to 2012...

Fantastic results! Margin wise Mirus has 2500 usd margin for dax.

Checked on the mirusfutures page - found the margin as you told.
Could not find any details page though for Eurex products - looks they are all vanished rigth now

Can you tell me the gain per point for the FDAX at Mirus? So I can make a full comparison - Thanks!

How come it can be any different, does not depend on a broker. 12.5 euro everywhere per tuch. 25 per point. Amp same, margin 3500 usd. 30 euro per month in fee to be connected to eurex.

Trade to live. Not live to trade.

Hi @GFIs1,

Maybe you should also check Cannon Trading which has a margin of $2000 for the DAX.

Thanks for all your inputs! I am learning every day more
Was only curious what other traders are getting with their brokers.
In fact - as I am trading mainly € accounts - there is no need to put more money at risk putting
it into another currency.

With IB I have the possibility to treat several accounts with one order at the same time.
This is called advisor account. The splitting is made first - then the execution goes to all
attached accounts.
I am listening carefully - if you have this possibility too with other brokers.

I think it should be possible with almost every broker, that the account/s gets managed in Euros. And also your need to have accounts attached to a major account, shouldn't be much of a problem to adapt. The most brokers call it institutional account. Just make a request und you will see.

I have an account in euros too, with amp. Can be done with mirus as well. But it should not be a big concern for you if you operate large accounts. What you described is called block trading. I think you need to talk with brokers' account managers. There is very a responsive guy here at futures.io (formerly BMT) from Mirus, maybe you can check with him.
