Comment on Consequences of Short delivery - NSE/BSE

Nithin Kamath commented on 11 Aug 2014, 08:52 AM

Ramarao,

This article is about when trading stocks/equity.

If you are trading at Zerodha, you can see the margin requirement for trading options (short options) using our SPAN calculator. If you are trading using the product type as NRML and have atleast 75% of the margin that is shown on the SPAN calculator in your trading account, you will be able to hold the position overnight. If you don’t have that much, the position will be squared off.

For example the SPAN shows around Rs 27000 to trade using NRML for shorting 7600 calls. If you have this much amount in your account, you can short and hold it till expiry.
