Are Bund Margins a bit high?


backwardation

Question

The Margin requirements for the German Bund ($FGBL) seem too high for its underlying volatility.  What criteria does IG use to determine margins for different instruments?  I can trade the XteraDax ($FDAX) with a 2% margin, but the Bund requires a 5% margin.  However the Dax is several orders of magnitude more volatile than the Bund.  Am I missing something?
