Hi Nithin,
today I saw crude oil in international market falls 4 dollar so I short crude oil in AMO but it reject my order after market opens by showing margin exceeds required although i have 40000 in my account & normal margin required for crude oil is around 24000 as shown in your site. Also I put a price much less than the opening price in limit order. Now please clear me how much margin do we really required to short a trade in AMO. Again if the order exceeds the required margin it should reject it immediately during its placement but it shows pending there & got rejected after the market opens.
