In margin calculator, its not showing me required margin, if I sell call of Nifty 50 expiry of 7 Nov 2019. Even it’s not showing for 14,21 November. It has option for 28 Nov margin required. How can I calculate margin requirement
I don’t think the margin calculator shows the margin for weekly contracts. What you can do is place an order from your trading terminal for the required contract for a large quantity. The order will get cancelled saying that you have insufficient fund and required amount will be mentioned.
Example: Lets say you have 5 lakh in your account. And you estimate that a BN option will require a margin for around 60k -1Lakh. So you place a sell order for 25 lots. Your order will get cancelled mentioning insufficient fund and required amount is 18,35,675. Boom ! Divide it by your ordered quantity (here, 25) to get the margin requirement. Which comes around 72k .
I found this method works better than using margin calculator as it is gives more Real-time value.
P.S. Make sure that funds is your Trading account is far less than the estimated cost of your dummy order. Or else it might get executed.
Thank you sir. It was very useful.
