Comment on Zerodha - Margin Policies

There was a news item in today’s Economic Times – SEBI is trying is increase the contract size; NSE is opposed but BSE wants it (BSE doesn’t have any derivatives business to speak of, so now wonder they want it to hurt NSE).

SEBI got rid of min-contracts a while ago according to the same news story.

All this in the name of protecting the “small guy” by keeping him away from derivatives; I’m not sure how restricting freedoms in an open marketplace helps protect “small guys” when all banks and AMCs have been extremely predatory in the last year pushing MF schemes with 3 year lock-ins and huge undisclosed commissions – specifically targeted at small guys.
