IB to implement margin change for deep OTM options?

  1. Saw a notice regarding changing margin of deep OTM and LEAP options on index's going forward?

    The message is short on details but basically saying they assume the implied vol will be greater for those options going forward. Again no specifics but apparently you can use the risk navigator to see how it affects your portfolio when it phases in next week.

    Anyone know details?

    I was going to ask you do you have email notices or notification of some sort regarding that? So far I haven't received anything on that. The margin on these options are already High. What does IB want? Trade on them with cash? LOL
  3. LOL, when you blow up, will you be hocking your wifes diamonds to meet the negative balance.

    Petterfy doesn't like uncompensated risk.
