Comment on Zerodha - Margin Policies

Nithin Kamath commented on 15 Apr 2014, 12:35 PM

Yes, of course when the price of underlying goes up, margin will also go up.

Nifty at 6000 , contract value 3lks, margin required @10% : 30k
Nifty at 7000, contract value 3.5lks, margin required @10%: 35k

Usually when the margins go up significantly, exchanges will reduce the lot size, for example when nifty was at 3000, the lot size was 100 and today at 6000 odd it is at 50.
