If I want to write an option expiring 3 years from now, how much margin will be blocked?

Why don’t you use this and check for yourself:


One crude way of checking is place an order and check by yourself.

If you don’t have enough money, order will be rejected in order book saying the amount required and available with you.

If you have enough money, order will be pending in order book and money is blocked and by this way one can know the margin required.

***place only limit orders in above cases with decent amount of spread to market quoting prices to make sure order is not traded as the intention here is only to know the margin required.


pretty good idea.

What a reply boss!
