Overnight positions in short Stock Options are subject to a carrying cost. The carrying cost is calculated on the basis of the daily margin requirement and applied when a position is held overnight.
The funding rate used for calculating the carrying cost is based on the relevant Interbank-rate + markup (150 bps).
Carrying Cost = Margin requirement * Holding time * (Relevant Interbank rate + Markup) / (365 or 360 days)
A Holding Fee on bought long dated Stock Options applies.
The Holding Fee will only apply to bought Stock Options with maturity beyond 120 days and be calculated based the Nominal Value and charged end-of-month.
|Bought Options daily holding fees per million (Nominal Value)|
|< 120 days maturity||n.a.|
|>120 days maturity||1.10|
Holding Fee per day = Nominal Value / 1,000,000 * Holding Fee
