Important information about managing your options exposure - ETO Margins and Stress Testing

In light of current high volatility in the market, please ensure you continue to monitor your ETO positions and margin requirements closely.

Please note that you may be required to provide an additional amount of margin if the existing margin is insufficient to cover the risk of your open positions having regard to market volatility. You will need to meet your margin obligation by 2pm on the day a margin call is made.

You can manage and meet your margin obligation through the following:

  • Depositing additional cash into your settlement account;
  • Lodging additional eligible ASX-traded securities as collateral; or
  • Reducing your exposure by entering into offsetting positions or closing out open positions.
