    How many contracts in 1000$ account MES

    hello guys I am pretty new at all this, I've been in simulation for over a year and want to start collecting the money to star a live account. My question is how many contracts can i buy on the MES with 1000$ account. The default NT8 Brokerage states 50 but it wont let me trade more than just 1 contract. Can someone help me to clarify that? THANK YOU

    Hello astridg15,

    Thank you for your note.

    You can find maximum position size per futures instrument for our NinjaTrader brokerage at the publicly available link below.

    If you are running into a limit with the simulation account, you may need to reset the account or edit the parameters of the account. You can do this via the Accounts tab in the Control Center > Right click on Sim101 > Edit Account. To reset, simply select Reset at the bottom right.

    Please let us know if we may assist further.

      hello I did try what you suggested and I dont know if I made something wrong but I got it worse since now does not allow me to trade not even 1 contract. LOL... also when it comes to a 50 intraday margin how does that affect trading lets say 10 contracts since each of them are 5$ that will be 50 per trade. that is what I dont get sorry about being this annoying and lost, but thank you
