Comment on Zerodha - Margin Policies

Nithy commented on 05 Apr 2014, 06:16 PM

Hi Nithin,

I have a small query about option writing.

For example: Today @ 11 am I sell Nifty 6300 put for 100 rs.

Today it closes of Rs.120. That means i have to pay 1000 rupees from account to maintain the margin before next trading.

Again next day , It closes to Rs. 110.

That means. I have to pay again 500 or 500 will be added to my account compare to previous close.

Are you getting what i am trying to convey?

Please clarify me.
Margin would be detected from the date which i write the option or the previous close of the day .
