That's one of the problems with naked short options: your mask risk is infinite. If you sold a spread your risk would be measured and not change over time.

not necessarily true. In terms of downside risks if you sell an option spread it depends on the type of spread. Some spread strategies have limited downside risk and others have unlimited.
