Comment on Option buying: The riskiest trade out there

Excellent post. I really appreciate the spirit in which it is written.

As a relatively new user of the platform (but otherwise not a newbie to the markets), I felt that having MIS and NRML in the same window (albeit different tabs) is confusing. At least there should be some colour coding. This problem will become bigger if you stop allowing conversion from MIS to NRML.

Alternatively, you might want to give a nudge – for example, when someone buys an MIS for futures in the far month it is likely a mistake and the individual intended to buy NRML (I recognize that for now you are only talking about disabling conversion for options but felt that I should add a comment just in case this idea spills over to futures as well).
