Query about Pledging ..Margin

Pls let me know while shorting Index weekly Options does margin increase during weekly Wed/Thursday??

If yes then by how much…

This only applies to stock options. Index options are cash settled and the margin remains the same till expiry (given expected volatility remains same).

Basis my experience, it does go up by ~5-10% on most Wednesdays, even with index options.

PS: I sell both calls and puts, so not sure if it’s specific to one of these or for both.

Yes depends on vix and other things , zerodha doesnt give exactly what happens suddenly itwill increase especially when ur in loss
