Comment on Zerodha F&O margin Calculator

1. Sell trade on 6 Nov at 40 and buy trade at 30 on the same day will be accounted as an intraday trade and you will make Rs.10 intraday profit. Your initial buy position of 10 lots at 20 will still be there in your account.
2. Yes, you can sell an option and use the funds released from that to buy another option.
3. Equity holdings have no effect on F&O positions. You can pledge equity and trade with the collateral margin where you can trade futures and write options. But still option buy requires full cash and you need to have free cash in your account to buy options.

F&O obligation amount is not a penalty. It is the profit/loss you make in futures on a daily settlement basis and it will also reflect the amount paid for option buying/amount released for sold options.
