(1)Indicative margin requirements

Margin and tick value information in this document is indicative.
Margins, Intraday margins and overnight margins are subject to frequent changes. Tick value is subject to modifications by exchanges.
Intraday margins can be suspended without prior notice (overnight margins apply in that case).
If an account holds both futures and options contracts on the same underlying asset, overnight margin always applies instead of intraday margin, even during the intraday trading day hours.
