Comment on Zerodha - Margin Policies

Vivek,

When you write an OTM option, when market goes against you the margin requirement will keep going up daily. You will have to track the margin requirement for the option you hold and ensure that you have enough funds to hold this.

The logic of future margin +30% is not correct.

You can use the SPAN calculator to know what is the exact margin requirement at every point of time. Click here to read about SPAN calculator.
