Increase in Intraday margins owing expected volatility [Updated]

In anticipation of the increased volatility, intraday leverage for the MIS, BO & CO product type will be lower than usual for Equity, F&O, and Currency segments.

Intraday margins for the Commodity segment will remain the same. Margin requirements will reset to normal as soon as the volatility subsides.

Please ensure you maintain adequate margins throughout the day to ensure your positions do not get squared off. Check the margin requirements on the Zerodha Margin Calculator: https://zerodha.com/margin-calculator/

Update 12.40 PM: Intraday margin requirements have been restored back to normal levels.
