    before close i wrote 10 ncp 1250 march calls for 95 and 10 1250 puts for 87.

    premium margin is a whopping $18.2k
    risk margin is only $3.4k
    gotta love that.

    IV's were 40 and 42. I doubt NCP will run past 1450 or fall past 1050, so this position should be fairly safe.



    ncp 12.5 call 95 -10 -9500 72 -7200 2300
    ncp 12.5 put 87 -10 -8700 94 -9400 -700

    not a bad week
