Additional Notes for Clients Using the Reduced Intraday Margin Rate

The day trade rate is valid from 9:00 a.m. until 4 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, for U.S. Equity Index Futures, as well as select Currency, Energy, Metals, and Interest Rate contracts. A valid stop order* is required at all times when utilizing the day trade rate. Additionally, an account using the maximum available day trade buying power is subject to a greater risk of immediate liquidation pursuant to the terms of your customer agreement, which includes when an account’s equity falls below the position’s intraday margin maintenance requirement. Repeat violations of the firm’s stop order policy could result in the loss of the account’s ability to utilize reduced intraday margins. Clients must be above initial overnight margin or out of their positions before the intraday rate ends. Please consult the trade desk for additional details.

SPAN margins may be applied. Margins required may vary from the published rates.

*Risking no more than 50% of the Intraday Margin Rate

By trading on margin (sometimes also referred to as “leveraging” or “gearing”) in your futures account, you acknowledge and agree that TradeStation may, in its sole discretion, and without prior notice to you, and at any time, impose a margin call and liquidate your account, in whole or part, to meet such margin call and otherwise satisfy or offset any debit item or debit balance, or decrease or eliminate leveraging, in your account. You further acknowledge and agree that TradeStation may, in its sole discretion, and without notice to you, liquidate any delivery month contract in your account to prevent or minimize the risk of delivery, and that such liquidation may occur five or more days, depending on the contract and TradeStation’s subjective evaluation of risk, prior to the delivery date.

Futures’ trading is not suitable for all investors and involves the risk of loss. The risk of loss in futures can be substantial. You should, therefore, carefully consider whether such trading is suitable for your financial condition. No statement within this webpage should be construed as a recommendation to buy or sell a futures contract or as investment advice.

The regular risks associated with trading commodity futures contracts also apply to the trading of Bitcoin futures. These risks can be viewed at the following link: https://www.tradestation.com/important-information/. Customers choosing to trade Bitcoin futures should consider additional significant risks including, but not limited to: (a) Bitcoin futures contracts have  a limited history of trading on  U.S.-regulated futures exchanges ; (b) The price of the underlying Bitcoin and the indexes on which the futures contracts are based are highly volatile and unpredictable based on many factors; (c) Since a limited number of futures commissions merchants may offer trading in the Bitcoin futures contracts, there might be limited volume that might impact market efficiencies and price movements; and (d) The risk of loss can be substantial and could result in a customer losing more than the initial or maintenance margin requirement.  As such, each customer should conduct his or her own due diligence prior to make a decision to trade in these products.  See the link below from the National Futures Association for more information.

Additionally, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (“CFTC”) has made available a Virtual Currency Resource Web Page designed to educate and inform the public about this topic and its risks.  See the link below for further information from the CFTC.
