Marginhandel

Client Margin Profiles

When trading Contract Options with Saxo Capital Markets, one might be able to cover potential losses involved on holding a position in the underlying instrument. That is the case when selling Contract Options short.

In case of a margin breach and stop-out is triggered, all Options positions will be closed. If a stop-out is triggered by trading other margin products (such as FX, CFDs, Futures) long Contract Options positions will also be included in the stop-out.

Margin Trading carries a high level of risk to your capital with the possibility of losing more than your initial investment and may not be suitable for all investors. 

Ensure you fully understand the risks involved and seek independent advice if necessary.

Trading Short - Margin

A short Option position exposes its holder to the risk of being assigned to deliver the underlying asset, when another market participant who holds a long position exercises his Option’s right. 

Losses on a short Option position can be substantial when the market moves against the position. 

Saxo Capital Markets will charge premium margin to ensure sufficient account value to be available to close the short position and additional margin to cover overnight shifts in the underlying value. 

The margin charges are monitored in real-time for changes in market values and a stop-out can be triggered when the total margin charge for all margined positions exceeds the client’s margin call profile. 

The generic formula for the short option margin charge is:
Short Option Margin = Premium Margin + Additional Margin 

Margin Trading carries a high level of risk to your capital with the possibility of losing more than your initial investment and may not be suitable for all investors.
