    Hi all,

    Does anyone know of a broker that will allow a spread margin if long S&P & short SPY in the correct ratio.

    All the brokers I have contacted say that you need the full margin on both contracts, which seems crazy, as the risk on the spread is only a few hundred bucks.

    Many thanks
