Comment on Zerodha F&O margin Calculator

Krishnamurthy B. commented on 24 Apr 2015, 06:17 PM

Sorry… a couple of mistakes in the example above…
– The quantity of options I calculated with was 25, not 100 as mentioned above.
– I earlier saw only total at the bottom of the table of individual margins, which was Rs. 17000+.
The “combined margin requirement” table shows the total margin of ~ Rs. 8000.
This is lower than in the reverse case (where it is Rs. 17,000+), but still, my question stands !!
Why is there a margin required in my example case?
Thanks.
Regards, Krish
