Comment on Zerodha - Margin Policies

Yes Akshay, keep looking up Varsity our education initiative, we will very soon have the module on F&O on that.

Futures are leveraged products, so to buy 8000*25 = Rs 2lks worth of Nifty, you will need only a small portion of it also called margin. Margin for trading Nifty is around 9% of the contract value, so in this case it should be around Rs 17000 to Rs 18000. (what you see on the margin calculator link).

IF you shorted at 8000 and bought back at 7990, your profit will be Rs 250 ( 10* 25).
