Margin calculation

  1. Hi All:
    Just wondering how the margin requirement would be calculated if I sold say a 40 call that expires in 1/2012 and then buy a 40 call that expires in say 4/11?

    Unless you are on Portfolio Margining the short call would be considered naked and thus would carry the margin requirement of a naked short call as it expires after the long.
