Sir, Could you pls clarify this instance?
If a client Has Rs.4 Lakh cash available in his account and takes 4 Short positions (Index Options) worth Rs. 5,50,000/- and his Margin short fall at 1,50,000/-.
Now,(1) How long he can keep this Shortage without paying as this shortfall is getting reduced day by day..?
(2) In case of non-payment, What will be the Penalty for this Shortage?
(3) How this Margin is calculated for different strikes, any specified Ratio is there?
Kindly clarify.
