Comment on Zerodha - Margin Policies

Tintin,

When you bought nifty at 5500 , 27500 was blocked, if you are selling the same nifty at 5600, you are exiting and for this no margin is required. It is like you are selling what you have bought.

If what you mean is that you are writing/shorting a call option, yes you will get a margin benefit and don’t require 28000. We have designed a tool on ZT through which you can calculate the exact margin benefit even before taking a trade, Click here to see the SPAN calculator.
