Comment on Option Strategy - Zerodha Trader

Margin required for only writing 12200put per lot is Rs 22581. If you buy the 12300 put, because you are hedging the position, the margin required drops to Rs 15900/lot for both positions together. For taking 3 such positions, you will need 45k in your account..

The way you have calculated margin requirements is wrong, that is why we have introduced, SPAN calculator where you can mention your trade and it will automatically let you know the NSE stipulated margin requirements..

Hope this helps,
