Comment on Online pledging of stocks for trading F&O

Paresh Sanghani commented on 14 Jun 2016, 09:59 PM

I have few questions hope to receive quick response which will help me to open account in Zeroadha
1) Why do you say “◦Exchanges stipulate that for overnight F&O positions, 50% of the margin needs to compulsorily come in cash and the remaining 50% can be in terms of collateral margin” – This is not true I am having Trading account with one big Securities (Brokerage) Firm & they provide complete collateral Margin for all types of trading except for delivery which is always in cash. Is this 50% rule still VALID?
2) You Said “◦You will be able to use this entire margin after haircut for taking intraday or overnight positions in Futures, and for writing Options of equities, indices, and currencies. You will not be able to use this margin to buy Options or take further positions on the equity segment” What do you mean writing Options ?
Do you mean we can buy a Call or Put and only Sell a Call or Put ? Please clarify
