  1. Sold Naked December 20 Large SP500 1130 Call Index was a paper trade...let's have some fun with this...there is sooooooooooo much talk on how easy it is to sell naked options...okay here it is:

    these have 4 days until expiration:

    sold December 20 call contracts at 1130 strike price

    Price $2.20 per contract ($250.00 multiplier)

    PREMIUM collected: $11,000.00

    So...what is the "margin" I need to be able to collect this $11k in 4 days???...this is going to reveal why the smaller tader cannot trade naked options with small cash
