Comment on Zerodha F&O margin Calculator

Shikhar commented on 03 May 2016, 11:41 PM

Do you think we have the provision to lower the margins for credit spreads in India? For instance
As on May 3, 2016, I sell infy 1240 call at 10.5 and buy infy 1260 call at 7.3.
My net credit is Rs. 3.2, and maximum loss is (1260-1240) + 3.2 = Approx 17. So with 500 lot size my maximum loss is Rs. 8500. So margin required should be around 8500. But its showing 76000 when i check on zerodha span?
Thanks & Regards
