How much money do i need to day trade futures

How much money do i need to trade futures - In order to day trade an e-mini s&p 500 (es) futures contract–one of the popular futures contracts for day trading–most brokers require you have at least 0 or 0 of available capital in your account to take a one contract trade–this is called day trading margin. You may find that your stop losses need to be placed further from your entry point, in which case, the risk on each trade increases, and thus you will need more starting capital (to keep the loss on each trade to 1% or 2% of account capital). A stop loss order gets you out of the trade once you lose a certain amount of money (if the trade goes against you) and your target order gets you out with a profit at a specified price (if the trade goes in your favor).
