Diagram of collor Strategy:

Collor is made by bying a share at current market price and Selling a call at higher strike price and buying a put at lower strike price.

Net premium=Call premium(bid)-put premium(ask)

=2.05-1.7

=.35

Maximum gain=Call stike price-current spot price+Net premium

=48-45+.35

=3.35

Maximum Loss=Current spot price-Put strike price-Net premium

=45-43-.35

=1.65

Question 15:

Option premium=1.35

Capital margin requirement=30

3 month rate of return=1.35/30*100

=4.5%

Annualized rate of return=(1+3month ROR)^{^4}-1

=1.045^{4}-1

=1.1925-1

=.1925 or **19.25%**
