On "average" - yes.
But we all have different tolerance - to each their own.


At a potential (large) loss...
There could be other "better" ways to cover further "emergency" expenses (e.g. via credit card etc.)

I prefer keeping a certain cash buffer - which can serve both as the EF as well as dry powder if a sudden drop(portunity) hits.
Don't mind the slight opportunity cost for that potential benefit.
margin is relatively cheap with IB. i guess you could use that as an emergency credit line and replenish with salary. likewise, you can use the margin for opportunities.
