Lowered: Margin Requirement for F&O Trading2 min read

We are thrilled to announce that we have made some major changes to our risk rules that will help our traders increase their Return on Investment (ROI). We are now charging a lower margin for Futures and Options (F&O) trading, making it approximately 10% cheaper for traders. This means that you can take F&O trades with less margin, which in turn will lead to increased returns on your investment.

Is this beneficial to your trading?

Margin is the amount of money that traders are required to deposit with their brokers to open a trade. By lowering the margin requirement, we are providing traders with more flexibility and affordability when it comes to F&O trading.

\We believe that this change will be particularly beneficial for traders who are looking to maximize their ROI, as lower margins will enable them to take more trades with the same amount of capital.

Let’s do a comparative analysis to give you an idea of how much margin we charge, here is an example using figures as of 14 March 2023:

100% collateral margin

*Note: Margin requirements are dynamic and change as per exchange policy.

The collateral margin is now 100%!

Apart from reducing the margin requirement, we have also enabled traders to utilize 100% collateral margin for day trading in equity, futures trading, intraday options selling, and overnight trades. This means that traders can now use their entire collateral margin for these types of trades, allowing them to capture more trading opportunities.

It’s worth noting that according to exchange margin rules, traders can utilize 50% margin per trade from collateral, and another 50% margin needs to be utilized via cash for overnight trades. If more than 50% of the available margin is utilized per overnight trade, then 1.5% interest per month will be charged on the additional overnight margin utilization. However, no interest will be charged for using 100% collateral in intraday trading.

In conclusion, we believe that these changes to our risk rules will provide our traders with more opportunities to increase their ROI and make profitable trades. We are committed to providing our traders with the best possible trading experience, and we hope that these changes will help you to achieve your financial goals.
