Comment on Zerodha F&O margin Calculator

Bushan commented on 15 May 2014, 01:40 PM

In the SPAN calculator, i have entered sell 6900 PE MAY 150 units and the margin requirements are :
SPAN Margin – 52,305
Exposure Margin – 32,004
Premium receivable – 20,005
Total Margin – 84,309.

MY question is:
1. When i enter the contract (i.e. short NIFTY 6900 150 units), in my trading account I should have Rs.84,309/- or 84,309 minus 20,005 (premium receivable) = Rs.64,304/- to successfully complete the transaction?

2. IF the above answer is Rs.84,309/- then how much money I will be left or blocked for trading after completing the above transaction?

3. Finally, if the above transaction is MIS then how much of margin will be required to execute the trade?
