Yes. Futures contracts are a leveraged product so you can take advantage of price movements at a fractional requirement of the notional value (ex. $75/barrel oil*1,000 barrels per contract = $75,000 notional value). While you do not get to trade with more funds than you deposit, the full value of the contracts you trade will give you additional monetary control.
