ZT-View Cash Limit

December 17, 2012


We have introduced newer platforms since this post was published. Check out this user manual for Kite and Kite explainer videos here.

The following blog explains you on how to access and use the “View limits” window to keep track of your trading account cash balance and the percentage utilization for the positions that you are holding.

To see the Cash Limit menu, use the shortcut key : Ctrl+Shift+V. Alternatively click on Surveillance –> RMS Limits –> View Limits.

Once the selection is made as shown in the above picture, your RMS view limits will show as below. I have taken 150 qty long position in NTPC Equity.

Keep a track of the cash margins and the utilization levels continuously and don’t forget to use the SPAN Calculator to know your exact positions even before you take a trade.

Happy Trading,


Your friendly neighborhood discount brokerage

  4. 1sabarivasan says:

  5. gitesh says:

    What is the minimum balance requirement for functioning Zerodha trading a/c …..suppose I put 10k capital for trading…..but some reason I want this money back in to my saving bank AC…can I able to do this..???

  6. Nitin says:

    Sir I have zerodha account.
    I have cash balance of 49989 rs but total available balance is 94500. It means that intraday margin will get according to 94500 instead of real cash 49989, is it like that.
    For ex. If I opt for 9 time mis margin to trade stock like Reliance then whatm argin I get 49,989 * 9 or 94500 * 9


    • If total balance is 94500 and cash balance of 49989, that means you are utilizing some margin for your open positions. You can hence get 9 times margin of the free cash. 49989*9

      • Harpreet says:

        How it is 9 time.
        Sir will you tell me , how much margin zerodha gives in %
        I want to by 10 shares of rs. 10 means 10*10=100 rs. for that how much money i need to buy.

      • laxmikant says:

        sir why my available balance is 10544 and withdrawal balance is only 2953 …..no margin used till date …..4 days already gone why my balance is not updating as per settlement period

        • Matti says:

          Hey Laxmikant, you’ve sold shares on the 31st. The settlement time for this is T+2, i.e., 2 working days after the sale. That would be completed today and you’ll be able to withdraw the proceeds of the sales.

  11. Malkeet singh says:

    Sir brought RCOM @ 51.60
    20 share, and it is my first trade of life. I did it just for experiment. And [email protected] 51.70. My profit should be approximate 1.5 rupee. It is not showing in my limits and marking.

    • Venu says:

      Congratulations 🙂 You can login to Q and view your ledger to see the credit/debit for the day. It’ll be updated on the trading platform by tomorrow early morning.

  12. Firoz says:

    What do you mean by
    1. Total account value
    2. Margin Used
    3. Free cash

    • Margin used is what is getting used currently for your open position. Free cash, is what is free. Total account value is sum of the both.

      • Pramila Patil says:

        Today is my second day on Zerodha, yesterday I had transfered some money say for example rs. 100 and today morning bought share of rs.70 and in the evening again transfered rs. 150 to zerodha account, all transfered to zerodha done by using immediate transfer.

        My question is as I have transfered total rs. 250 to zerodha and bought share of rs. 70, how my total value showing as rs.110 instead rs.180 and free cash as rs. 180.

      • Shivajee says:

        Why my account value is negetive and i have free cash of Rs. 389?

  13. dp3999 says:

    Hello Nitin sir,
    When I m trading for intraday MIS&CO You should show us how much shares I can buy with the margin when I m selecting one of the share for buying/selling, so it will be helpful for us to execute order fast. Can you do it for your kite mobile app. Thank you.

  14. Pushpa says:


    Thanks for Zerodha for first day of my trading experience.

  16. raj says:

  17. Aman says:

    Respected sir
    I bought some shares and sold it after an hour had a profit of 160 rs received my principal amount ASA I sold my shares so can I use that again to buy something ? And the profit that I incurred it’s been shown in margin used so when the profit would be credited in my account .

  18. Sairam says:

    I want to hide the cash position panel in Pi. Is that possible?

  19. Sairam says:


    Shift + F1 is not working on the graphs when graphs are selected. It is working only on the Default MW. Please let us know how to resolve this.. .Also Can we edit the shortcut keys for options like Buy, Sell, Exit etc …

    • siva says:

      shft+f1 will work even when charts are opened but make sure the opened charts are not index charts as one can’t place orders for indices. If still you are not able to open order windows from charts you can write to [email protected]. One cannot create customized shortcuts.

  20. Kaushal says:

    I was trading in equity using margin.. after execution of order, I earned the profit… in dashboard also, the profit was added to balance, … but it shows margin used in negative.. what is it?

  22. Pathik says:

    Sir , I am new to Zerodha , on kite app funds sheet showing total value 7400 , free cash 65074,margin used is -7673, so my doubt is why margin is negative , whether I have to pay , or it will debit by free cash .

  24. abc says:

    How to get Total account value or total cash available at end of financial year for both equity & mcx account in zerodha as on 31st march of any financial year end. Secondly need records for 2011-12 financial year, not even available in old back office. How to get them?

    • For 2011-12, send us a request on [email protected], we will check if we can provide. You can get total account value, by looking at your ledger for whatever dates you want, you can also see positions and holdings as on that date. Login to Q.zerodha.com for this.

      • abc says:

        Thx for the reply Nithin, when you say You can get total account value, by looking at your ledger for whatever dates you want, what does that figure mean total cash + open trading position margin included ( Be it short or long position) . I have Dmat account with il&fs so equity holdings value will not be included in zerodha ledger, right? As far as request for 2011-12 is concerned that I have already done before posting question here, cc to you & Ashwath also ticket no is 820322.

        • Ledger will show cash and margin blocked. For long option premium value, look at the open position for that day and see the premium value of long options as they won’t be part of your ledger balance. For holdings value, open the holdings table and get a holding value (even ILFS holdings show up in holding table on q.zerodha.com). Check this post.

  25. abc says:

    Hi Nithin, It’s more than 3 working days but I have not got complete correct reports from customer support, can you look into support request #820322 & close the matter today itself ? My CA will be out of town for audit purpose from tomorrow eve for few days & then there are functions in family which can’t be escaped so I have to sit with CA either today eve or tomorrow morning to close this matter & if I don’t get reports till today eve I will not be able to maintain my books properly. Pls look into the matter & close it asap.

  26. abc says:

    Hi venu , Got p&l for f&o but no details about cash & mcx transactions. As far as mcx is concerned i think there will be no entry but will be good if you can recheck it & status about equity holdings & equity trading will be required if there are any transactions.

    • Venu says:

      Would appreciate if you can revert back on the ticket. I’ll ask my team to check.

      • abc says:

        I have already reverted back to ticket, got f&O P&l report but scrip code is hidden so I have requested 2 times to resend me report with complete scrip code.No trade in mcx as per support team but As far as equity trading transactions are concerned haven’t got any clarity & for holdings they have given me il&fs email details for getting holdings details. so waiting for p&l report with full scrip code & reply on any equity transaction.

  30. Devendra kumar yadav says:

    Hello Sir, today I placed an mis order to buy 100 shares of SBI. But before 3.20 pm I cancelled the order. Now it is showing margin used 2200 rs . and rest as free cash. So my query is – when this margin will be added to my free cash.

  31. amit shaw says:

    i transferred 4k on sat from my bank to zerodha…..on that night total equity balance showed 4k amount…but Sunday morning I noticed my equity free cash balance is 0.
    Please note. My account opened on saturday night.

  32. Rajdeep Ghosh says:

    I can’t buy birla cotsyn on 0.05. every time rejected. when then price was .1 then it exicuted and i’m abale to buy. and sell that share in .05. That was a loss. Actually I need to buy this share when it will .05 and sell .10. So please help me if u can.

    • siva says:

      I believe you are trading in NSE and not in BSE,it is not getting traded at .05 might be to the reason of lakhs of shares were pending before your order as priority is based on price-time, as every one kept same price the priority will be to those traders who have placed the order before you.Anyhow will reach you tomorrow on this and get it sorted.

  33. Salman says:

    Hey I am new to stock market and have opened account with zerodha and have started trading but i have 2 questions in mind

    1) should i pay any amount othere then amount mentioned in contract note if i use margin for intraday.
    2)Everyday contract note is sent to client it has all charges mentioned in it
    so my question here is that why there is a (*) next to the brokerage in contract note.

  34. rohith says:

    i have account with zerodha. today i have transferred 20k to my zerodha account to invest in mutual funds. but now this 20k is shown in ‘margin available’ but not in ‘total account value’. why? how can i use this money in ‘margin available’ to purchase mutual funds units?

  35. akash says:

    what term in fund 1: Margin Available ,Margin Used, Total Account Value plz exlpaine me

  36. Deepti says:


    I have read through above comments but my situation is bit more complex and hence asking here:

    1) I have pledged Liquid Bees and Coal India, say I get a margin after haircut as 1 Lakh and 1.5 lakhs respectively.
    2) Also added fund from bank, say 50k
    3) Write 2 option which needs Margin of say 80k and 90k each.
    4) My assumption is that out of total margin needs of 1.7 lakh, first 85k should come from Coal India pledge margin (i.e. 1.5 Lakhs), remaining 50% should come from pledge of liquid bees (i.e. 1 lakh) and my cash should still be available for me to buy equity.

    Please suggest if this is not how calculation is being done today?

    Asking this since my Ledger is shown as negative 1.2 lakhs i.e. 50k- 1.7 lakhs. Will I be charged interest on this?

    My exact situation per is more complex since I have multiple positions but ideally concept should remain same. H

    • Calculation is done the same way you have said. Interest will be charged only if ur cash + liquid bees < 50% of margin used. The ledger will show negative balance, because there is no cash in the account, but ignore that, look at equity balance on the landing page of Q or on Kite. Note: trade process today has been delayed.

      • Deepti says:

        Thanks for your prompt response. So just to get my understanding clear: On Q- there is “Equity Cash Balance” and “Equity Balance”. I will start accruing interest only when “Equity Balance” is negative…correct??

        Should I be worried about negative value in “Equity Cash Balance” for any reasons?

    • Btw, you can also check out any interest charged here: https://q.zerodha.com/interests/display/

      • Deepti says:

        Just posting with the latest reply so its easier to track for you:

  38. Vijay says:

    Hello ,
    I wanted to know , what is the usual turn around time for a query to be responded from Zerodha Customer care for clients ?


  39. geetha says:

    with a balance of Rs.2052 when I place order for a value of Rs2000 it gets rejected saying “rms:rule: check circuit limit including square off order exceeds for entity account-zy4336 across exchange across segment across product”

  40. somesh says:

  41. shiva says:

    hey zerodha, i loaded a total of 10k in my zerodha account 5k in the begining and 5 k today (i.e. 03/april/2017) right now i just opened my account ( time is 10:00 pm) and it shows
    my margin available is 15155.24
    margin used is -835.

    and total account value is 9320.24.

    i’m a new user , i don’t understand a thing about it. please explain the dash board terms and stuff…..

    And i got a doubt regarding the bracket order,

    if i purchase 100 reliance shares ( as BO ) @1340 and i put my target as 20 and stop loss as 10 points and trailing stop loss as 5. what does that means …..?

    sometimes my order book shows number of orders………. if it executes my order in 3 or 4 steps, do i charged for 3 or 4 times / transactions as shown in zerodha calculator or i simply charged for my 100 shares as a single order and levy the charges only once……..please clarify my doubts…….thanks

    • About your account info, best you send an email to [email protected] with client ID. About brackets, every time your entry order is partially executed, a new set of SL and target has to be placed. Since entry order is only one, brokerage is charged only once. For exit orders, it will be charged separately. Check this playlist of videos on Kite.

      If you opened the demat account in the last financial year, an AMC would be levied on pro-rata basis for the demat account. Your account is in a negative balance of Rs.6, you need to transfer money to your account to be able to trade.

      Yes Prasanna, That means you owe money to your trading account.There isn’t an auto-debit facility, you would need to make a fund transfer to your trading account.

  50. Harmeet Singh says:

    I filled in my account open form the deatil of my saving account in Union Bank Of India.
    But today i see on zerodha’s website, there are 28 banks listed but Union Bank Of India is not in the list.
    Is Union Bank Of India is valid or not.
    Plz reply.

    • Akshay.A says:

      Harmeet, Union Bank is one among those banks which doesn’t have instant payment facility and hence you are not able to view the same on the trading platform.
      You can transfer funds via NEFT/RTGS or IMPS. Check here

  51. OneUser says:

    I want to know how to execute an order at full capacity in MIS ? Say I have 10000 cash and I want to trade shares worth 97 INR per share. I do not know what is the margin for each share as it varies and it is time consuming to go and check. Is there any setting which can consume all my cash and calculate by itself and place order for that calculated quantity ?

  52. Harmeet Singh says:

    Today i got my zerodha Client id and password… when i tried to add fund, there is no bank showing in Payment Gateway/ Bank list…

    • Akshay.A says:

      Harmeet, You have a Union Bank account which isn’t on the list for the Instant Payment transfer via Payment Gateway in Kite. You’ll have to transfer funds via NEFT/RTGS & IMPS. Check here

  56. Swapnil says:

    What is the difference between Margin Available and Account Value?
    Suppose I have 1K Margin available and 7K account value can I purchase stocks worth Rs 8K?
    The other question is,
    Why can’t a person withdraw the Margin Available? though these money is added through Payment gateway For Example, Suppose Today I have added 5K into my Zerodha, which gets added to margin available can I withdraw that amount on same Day?

    • Akshay.A says:

      Margin available is the total amount available on trading account to trade. Account value includes the free cash balance + any holdings

    why my account showing 0 balance in equity fund?

  70. Shreevardhan says:

    Dear sir,
    Where can I check real time cash available for CNC orders during market hours in Zerodha Trader. The ” Cash margin available” column shows EOD value & doesn’t update even after executing CNC orders. I am using collateral margin also for open FNO positions hence “NAM”-“Margin used” shows mix of cash & collateral margin.

  71. Ritesh says:

    Sir, i traded alot yesterday (Friday)& I have 8,500 /- .
    Today (Saturday) evening ,it showing zero in Equity funds, everything zero my holdings & positions and notification…Nothing is showing.
    Pls help what’s wrong

  72. Rihana says:


    I have the following information at Zerodha Kite:-
    Collateral: 4.01L
    Total Account Value: 3.77L
    Margin Used: 6.31L (NRML only)
    Margin Available: 1.47L

    1. As per my calculation, 61K should be the Cash Balance.
    But, I am not able to see this value anywhere in Kite/Pi/Q.

    2. Also, I want to know how much money will I be able to withdraw from my fund.

    • It is a little tricky to show the cash balance when you have collateral. If you can go to fund withdrawal on Q, you will be able to see the money that you can withdraw.

      • Rihana says:


        As per the calculation of 50% from collateral and 50% from Cash,
        About 3.16L should be used from each, right.
        So, I should be having about 68K(3.77L – 3.16L) as Cash Balance and 85K(4.01L – 3.16L) as Unused Collateral.

        But in Q Back Office, it shows the Withdraw able balance in negative i.e. -2.54L (3.77L – 6.31L)
        i.e. Total Cash – Total Margin Used.
        It is not considering the collateral at all.

        I believe, the system should allow unused Margin which is 1.47L in my case to withdraw.
        Please let me know.

    Hi there,
    I have done an MIS trading on 18 Aug/17 of two stocks(say X & Y). I make a loss of Rs. 106.80 of stock X and a profit of Rs. 52.50 of stock Y and finally I loss Rs.(106.80-52.50=)54.30. After the trading period when I checked my dashboard, I found that Rs. 54.30 (assigned as Margin Used) has been added to Margin Available which sums up to Total Account value. What if I make a profit of Rs. 54.30 and What does Margin Used Mean?

    With regards

    An early response would be appreciated.

    Hi, sir.

    I am trading in mcx intraday. I started this morning with Rs 15000. The first profit I earned was 1000 Rs and in Pi cash position it reflected as 15989 free cash.

    In the second trade I earned Rs 250 and in the third trade again I earned Rs 1000 as profit. But it is not reflecting in the cash position it still is showing 15989. Why is it so?

    Please guide me. When is it going to show in my cash position and how can I see my total Intraday profit.

  98. Hitesh says:

    In my Zerodha account it shows equity margin avaibale = -36 .What does that mean.
    Also Four Days Ago it was -4 and I have not taken any trade since then , but still it has reached -36 how did this happened?Do we get any e-statement of all the transactions and effective margin after that?

      Hitesh, you can check out all the settlement entries on your ledger in Q. You can check your contract notes for trade details.

  99. JITU says:


    • Matti says:

      Hi Jitu. No, we don’t provide any leverage for purchasing stocks and holding overnight. You’d have to bring in full cash. Futures and options are already leveraged on the exchange level and the full exchange stipulated margin (SPAN + Exposure) is required to take overnight trades. Check out the various margin requirements here.

    How to calculate Total Account Value if my dashboard is showing Margin Available 3,861.02 and Margin used 14,255.63 ?
    Its showing my Total Account Value that is 116.64 ?
    How it is calculated ?

    • Matti says:

      Total account value is calculated based on your holdings and previous closing balance. For trading, you need to look at the margin available. Basically, you can place trades for up to 3861.02 without any leverage.

    • Anubhav says:

      Tomorrow you will be able to do.

    • Matti says:

      Manjunath, the Q balance is only updated at the end of the day. Also, all trades are settled on T+1 (T+2 if you’re taking or giving delivery of shares), so withdrawals of this amount is only possible on the succeeding day.

    I added 10000rs to my zerodha trading account.It is been shown in the margin available but it is not shown in the total account value???…is there any problem with my account??please tell me…

    • Matti says:

      The funds are actually settled on a T+1 basis, which means we receive the funds in our bank account on the next day. On the day of the transfer, we only get confirmation of the transfer hence this margin is allowed for trading.
