    intraday margins

    In a couple of messages on this forumI have read about exit- and stoploss orders not being executed because of insufficient margin.

    Maybe this a dumb question but suppose I trade the emini S&P with a $500 intraday margin and place an entry order of 1 contract with a bracket (target and stoploss), how much margin would I need?

    In my logic only $500 since the target and stoploss orders are exit orders and only neutralize the open position and not add to the open position. So why is there extra margin required for an target/stoploss order? Am I missing something?

    This question is best answered by your broker. Different brokers may have different policies and NinjaTrader does not control order rejection based on account limits set by your broker.
