Comment on Zerodha - Margin Policies

Prabhakar commented on 12 Apr 2014, 07:31 PM

Hi Nithin,
Suppose I have 50000 Capital. I purchase 1 lot stock future for 30,000 and 1 lot Put option of same stock as a hedge for 10,000 and 10,000 cash left. What will happen when stock fall by 10% next day. Zerodha will trigger selling my future at what price.. will it will be sold after loss of 10,000 in future as after that margin requirement will break or will they keep counting my Option value as margin as well. so Is it possible that it won’t be sold, if option price increase significantly and generate enough profit (>=loss in future).. Please explain.. Thanks!
