Comment on Zerodha - Margin Policies

Thanks for the reply but that’s a kind of bad news for my strategy 🙁

I’m not able to trade due to high margin requirements these days.

My assumption was that whenever the price of underlying goes up so does the margin required to trade in that underlying however as the margin required goes up.

My rationale was that the average margin required (i.e, Margin – Premium i receive for opening the position) should have been constant because if margin required goes up so should the premium i receive thereby almost nullifying the effect of increase in margins.

However this logic doesn’t seems to be working these days. Am i missing something here?
