Comment on Option Strategy - Zerodha Trader

Antriksh commented on 19 Sep 2015, 04:48 PM

Hello.

I am new to options trading.

I have just the required amount to put a butterfly spread or an iron butterfly in place for a particular stock (around 20-25k). But if I only sell options for the same my margin requirement will be quite high around 70-80k. SO, in order to take benefit of the strategy for reducing the margin what should I do first. Should I buy the options first and then sell for applying the strategy.
OR
Should I sell first and then buy the remaining legs.
OR
I’ll be getting the benefit irrespective of what I buy first.

The main issue is funds in my account as it is just enough to cover the exposure of a particular startegy.

Also, is there anyone in Zerodha customercare to whom I can talk regarding this?
