What's The Margin Requirement For Selling Put Options?
Hope you all had a good week.
Are you selling put options?
If so, do you know, or understand, what the margin requirement is?
The margin requirement is an integral part of the process, and is a portion of your funds that are held aside while the trade is active.
How much will be held aside?
Well, your broker will have their own thresholds, and in this video, I show an example using Interactive Brokers (IB).
It's an important concept to learn, and it's my goal to get you up to speed.
Also in the video, I analyze the stock charts as part of my "Saturday Synopsis", to comment on last week's trading activity and what may lay ahead for next week.
