1. If you want more scrips, shoot an email to [email protected], we will have it increased.
2. Will bounce it off the tech team.
3. There are 3 different ways you can trade futures:

NRML (Normal), where you will need the entire SPAN+Exposure margin to trade. You can see this here. If you want to see this in percentages, there is a small link on the top right of the main box Equity SPAN margin.

MIS (Margin INtraday square off), where you can trade intraday with 40% of the NRML margins, but note that all positions get squared off by 3.20pm.

Bracket order & Cover order, in these two types of order you have to compulsorily choose a stop loss price and since you choose stop loss price and risk is limited, extra leverage is provided to you for intraday.

So if you want to trade Infy as NRML margin required is 49147, as MIS (40% of this) which is around 20,000 and if you are trading using BO&CO with a stoploss of 3100 then the margin required is only 6414.

Hopefully clarifies.
