Comment on Basics on Options Shorting/Writing

Nithin Kamath commented on 07 Nov 2016, 02:34 PM

Margin to write SBI calls will be around 80 k to 90 k. lot size is 3000, so rs 1 loss will cause you a MTM loss of Rs 3000. Usually when you lose 10 to 20% of margin required is when broker might start squaring off your position. So say when you start making notional loss of upwards of Rs 9000 (when call goes to 8 and above).
