  1. Hi,

    I have a question.

    I am opening an account with TOS and I build my options portfolio but I have a problem.

    it's just a sample.

    I have 25000$
    I want trade a title XYZ to 48$
    I sell 10 call to 50$ and buy 10 call to 51$

    the maximum risk is 1000$
    the marge is 1000$

    but if the title is to 52$ I am assigned but I have not the 51000$ to buy the coverage and give the title.
    how TOS manage the position ?
