Are US citizens going to be able to trade these instruments with leverage, or do we get screwed like with gold and silver margin requirements?

Thanks laurinkus. I was hoping to be able to trade corn, but no such luck.

On the bright side: your Govt. has taken precautionary measures to protect you from over-leveraging.

Yes, I should be thankful that there are fewer ways for me to lose money.

Dream come true! laurinkus, how do you know this info?

Adding crude oil would complete the essential package.

Interesting. Thank you for the info Laurinkus.

I wonder if it will be available for Asia Pacific Division.

I asked OANDA less than 2 months ago if they were likely to add new instruments as the Michael Stumm's message few months ago I think was letting augur, and they replied me it was not intended for now. As a result I just opened an account with another firm 2 weeks ago [Roll Eyes] . I would rather like trading with OANDA.
It looks like they are proposing the same things that RBS Marketindex, or similar. It is a pity there is not CL as it is an interesting instrument too.
