Comment on Zerodha - Margin Policies

Nithin Kamath commented on 20 Sep 2014, 12:38 PM

This margin you are talking about must be for intraday, because for overnight position, exchange has set a minimum otherwise which a penalty is levied, immaterial of which broker you trade with.

Check our SPAN calculator, to short a 8500 call overnight margin requirement is around 24k, so intraday is around 10k. If you use cover order/bracket orders, you can trade the same for around 7500.
