Comment on Zerodha - Margin Policies

chandra commented on 02 Apr 2013, 02:33 PM

Taking example of prices that you have listed, to buy 1 lot of 5800 put I need 4800 rs. If I am selling 5500 put at 15 rs I am getting 750 rs back. As long as I have 5800 put, why is there a margin requirement for 5500 put. Isn’t my 5500 put that I wrote completely protected by the 5800 put that bought. Shouldn’t’ the margin requirement actually be 4800-750=4050?
