I am confused about the new rules about peak margin.
Lets say I want to sell a credit spread - if I buy call first and than sell the call - total margin requirement will be higher because system will not know I am creating spread so it calculate separate margin for each trade at first and eventually reduce overall margin?
So one should always create higher margin position first ? i.e. sell position in case of option?
Also, same question about exiting this position …one should always exit sell position first ?
