    Respected sir/ma’am,
    I placed an option call trade today at around 2:30pm, but was unable to exit the trading as it stated that I had insufficient funds and required margin is aorund 2.7lakhs even though I was trading in thousands only , even though it was written on the bottom left portion – margin required (0) , since it was a call option and I wanted to exit.
    Please fix this before tomorrow’s market opens,
    Thanking you.

    Hi … I am trading in crude options.. little confused about exiting the trades…. say i bought a crude call option premium at 200 rs by buying from the chart using the drag and buy option and the premium went up to 210 and i want to exit at market price , What do i do?

    Should i put in a sell thru a limit at a price lesser than the LTP, will it get triggered at the market price of 210 or will it get triggered at the price that i have entered ?

    I bought sunpharma stock option in NRML and when tried to exit my order got rejected saying insufficient margin for sell. It was asking 10 time more margin than it’s original amount. But some time later it executed after several try in market price. After that i stop trade in stock options. In previous comment another trader ask same question but you didn’t answer. So please confirm that ( Is MIS type mandatory for intraday in f&o or I can do intraday in NRML type order.) Please reply so i can resume trading in stock options.

    • Arun says:

      I faced the same situation today . Bought July 9th 10700 PE at 20INT and to avoid loss, I placed a stop-loss order at 17.9. When i tried to exit at 18-INR, error “Insufficiend margin came-up.” I had to cancel my stop-loss order and retry exiting my position. Then it got successful. My concern is can we buy and sell option on the same day using NRML ? , or should we use MIS ? . I entered this trade one day before expiry. So, i assume MIS and NRML dont have much difference here.

      • Matti says:

        You can use MIS or NRML, that is fine. However, if you already have an open order to exit the position, you should either modify that or cancel it and place a new order. If not, you’ll need additional margins because the other order also could execute and create a new position.

Now,here starts the problem:- 1. The price reaches my stop loss trigger(990) and then my position gets closed. That’s good. 2. But after sometime the price reaches my target which was set earlier (1010) my sell order gets triggered and I am left with another loss position. I searched through your website for possible solutions, I tried placing trades through BO, but due to volatility it didn’t allow me to place order. GTT is also available for holding positions only, GTT can’t be used for MIS. Can u please provide me a solution for the above problem

    • Matti says:

      No. Stocks are debited from the demat account in a FIFO (First-In-First-Out) fashion. This is how the depositiories work and you cannot choose to alter this.

      If you have a CNC position, you can only square it off in CNC. If you try squaring off using MIS, it’ll only create a new position.

      If the stock has hit the lower circuit, it means that it isn’t trading anymore for the trading session.

            In zerodha the two way brokerage of buy & sell for an MIS order is 0.07% , whereas for CNC is 0.23% almost. what if i exit the CNC order same day- will it cost 0.23% or should i convert the order to MIS and then exit.
            People please shed some light based don your experience.

            Thanks & regards,
