    If I sell shares from my holding Will I get the margin same day or T+2 day.

    • Matti says:

      Hey Ramesh, you get margins immediately that you can use to trade. The proceeds of the sale can only be withdrawn after T+2 though.

  2. Ramesh Sehgal says:

    I have bought some Liquidbees and requested them to be pledged I want to know that for F&O trading will these be counted as the cash component of margin.

  3. sukhvir says:

    thank you and good luck

  4. Shiju says:

    Hi, I want to withdraw funds but Q is not showing that option. I emailed customer support, but no response. Called the customer support number but it says we are closed and check the holiday calendar. Today is not a holiday. Please address my email ASAP. Ticket#636994

    • Matti says:

      Support lines close at 6. The withdrawal window is now available till 8:30. 6.30 to 7.30 withdrawal is disabled as we’re running the trade process for the day.

  7. Jayakumar Raju S says:

    Nitin Sir,
    i have a query. please clear it.
    Nov 23 Is Thanks Giving Day in U.S.A —- THERFORE A NATIONAL HOLIDAY — But Indian Market is open , Since The commodity Market is linked to USA ( especially Crude, NG , GOLD AND SILVER , WHO REGULATES THE PRICE MOVEMENTS .
    Secondly, Nov 30 ( Thursday) is OPEC MEETING —– THERE Will be big movements( my exoerience last year. But Under Trading Holidays given by zerodha , the morning session is closed and only evening session is open. This is not Fair. Can u clear the air about this.

    Hello Team,

    In above calendar on 10th May 2017 it is written as Trading Holiday on account of Buddh Pournima for MCX for both sessions.
    However, there is no Trading Holiday mentioned for Buddha Porunima(10th May 2017) on MCX site below…

    Could you please confirm the same.


  15. Kalyankar says:

    Hi Sir,

    As per NSE holiday list 28th March is Trading holiday.
    But how come market is open today.
    How this miscommunication from NSE India itself.

  16. PR1743 says:

    As far as I know…MCX is not open on Saturday/Sunday….Then how come the evening session is shown open on Mahavir jayanti, bakrid, mohuram which falls on either Saturday or Sunday

    Thank U Mr.Nithin,I had written to support to add weekly,monthly,quarterly timeframe in Pi charts but it has not been added.Also is it possible to link Metatrader 4 or 5 to Pi charts instead of Amibroker?I would like Zerodha to conduct training in share markets like trading intraday,short term with top traders for a reasonable fee,i’m sure many Zerodha clients will be interested.Sharekhan, ICICI are having training classes for their clients so if you can think of something it would be good for all.

  49. Darshan says:
