1. Yes you can use it as collateral. But you are allowed to use this collateral only for futures trading or options writing (no option buying).
2. Haircut will be around 15%, this is the link for all approved stocks. It currently doesn’t show haircut %, we will try to incorporate this soon.
3. yes, ETF: Exchange traded funds, so you need a broker to buy ETF’s
4. Yes there is no mandate to keep 10% cash, but it is best to keep so that in case of any loss, this cash component can cover that.
