    Hi all

    I wish to know about the formula/method used to calculate the margin
    amount to be paid for writing an option ( may be call or put).

    Is this amount affected by :
    a) whether underlying is present or not
    b) long derivative position in the same security for different
    maturity or strike price.

    If yes, then what is the formula used by the broker system.

    Thanks
