Comment on Zerodha F&O margin Calculator

My bad Mayuresh, when you had mentioned Short call GBP futures, I thought you were referring to call options, and hence asked you for the strike price. Options trading is allowed only on USDINR in currency.

Coming back to your query, when you take such a position, buy 1 month future, and sell another, it is called a Calendar spread. Such a position is completely hedged, and hence has hardly any risk.

The Total margin (8422), is what will be blocked in your trading account.

Cheers,
