Comment on SPAN Calculator

There is different margins blocked by the exchange for placing orders and for positions which are already taken. If you fill up the pending quantity boxes(buy/sell) it will tell you margins based on what is required to place them

Net quantity box will show based on what is for holding a particular position. Ideally best to use net quantity, + for buy positions and – for short/writing positions.

There could be small variance between what SPAN calculator shows and what is actually blocked, should not be this much, can you upload a screenshot here.
