What are requirements for Futures Margin ?
Futures are traded on margin. and it’s highly leveraged. For example, if an E-mini S&P 500 Index futures contract (/ES) has an initial margin requirement of $6,600 and a maintenance margin of $6,000, buyers or sellers must have $6,600 in their account to enter the contract and need to keep at least $6,000 in their account to stay in the position.

Please note: Both initial and maintenance margin levels are set by the exchanges and can change at any time based on market conditions.
