Comment on Option buying: The riskiest trade out there

K N Viswanathan commented on 08 Jul 2021, 02:31 PM

I have read Zerodha Varsity not once but several times. I don’t find an answer to my query in varsity. I normally sell equal quantity on Call side & Put Side for Far OTM trades & short starddles. I want to know will my margin requirement be less if I match the contract value instead of selling equal quantity. Also selling equal quantity at equidistance from ATM on either side nullify the risk.
