Comment on Basics on Options Shorting/Writing

Hello Nithin,

How accurate is your SPAN Margin calculator? I have seen in a lot of the posts where you mention that writing one option contract would require about 20k in margin. But the SPAN Margin calculator on your website shows me that you’d only require 13,500 – 14,000 per contract for options that are about 5% out of the money. Could you please clarify as to which figure is more accurate?
