Comment on Basics on Options Shorting/Writing

If you use our SPAN calculator, you will see that the margin required to get into a position like this is around 20k. When Nifty drops by 400 points, the margin will most likely go upto around 30k, so you would be required to bring in the extra 10k as margin to hold this combined position. Basically you will have to bring in whatever is the increase in margin for holding both positions together.
