  1. Hi all I'm new here and looking to buy some options as a hedge. On this page http://www.ig.com/au/options-product-details It says, at note 10, "10. The margin requirement for buying a stock index option is the opening price (or premium) multiplied by the contract value (per point in the underlying market). This is the maximum possible loss on the position." It appears that this note only applies to some markets. My understanding is that the margin is the maximum possible loss is true for ALL purchased options? At the moment I'm planning on buying some December Puts on the ASX200 and some December calls on gold. Thanks in advance
