Frequently Asked Questions

Maximum Position Size

Maximum position size is the total number of open positions you can have at any time.  Total open positions are the maximum number of contracts for all products.  

Example:  If your maximum position size is ten lots, you can have 4-CL open positions, 3-ES open positions, and 3-NQ open positions.  

Maximum Position size as it relates to Micro Products:  The maximum position size is the same across all products, whether micro or mini products.  In the same example above, if you are trading ten micro-ES contracts, you will not be able to trade any additional contracts for any instrument.

The exception to this rule is if you upgrade your account to a micro-only, you can trade the specified number of contracts in the upgraded plan.  You cannot trade any “mini” products in the micro-only account.
