    Is your broker increasing your Portfolio Margin requirements often? Are they adding a risk premium over PM requirements that they were not implementing a few months ago?

    Are they making it more difficult to sell credit spreads or naked puts and calls? I'm getting calls from a few traders that are having this issue. If you are, please post your experience here.
