Comment on Zerodha - Margin Policies

Sukesh commented on 28 Apr 2014, 10:35 AM


My assumption was that whenever the price of underlying goes up so does the margin required to trade in that underlying in F&O, however even if the margin required goes up the average margin required OR cash required to trade (i.e, Margin – Premium i receive for opening the position/Writing Options) 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?
