What is the exchange minimum margin requirement on SSF positions?



In the case of a long or short SSF, the exchange margin margin requirement is equal 20% of the underlying value of the contract (initial and maintenance margin)


In the case of a hedged position (e.g., High or Low Synthetic startegy) in which a customer is long (short) a security futures contract and short (long) the underlying security, the required maintenance margin would be equal to 5% of the instrument having the higher current market value.
