So I have some queries regarding the new margin rules. I did post these queries in an existing thread but got no response and the thread moved on without me. So please bear with me.
Is the new margin framework like 20% Var+Elm for all intraday scrips or is it still gonna differ scrip wise with 20% being the minimum margin? Like it could be higher than 20% for certain scrips.
From Dec 1st onwards, is EPI(early pay in function) available or not ? Like , can we sell our holdings and use the margin received immediately?
How is this new margin framework going to change the pre-expiry margin reuirements for ITM options at Zerodha. I mean, is Zerodha still going take 50% of contract value on Wednesday and Thursday or is that gonna change to what the exchange has stipulated and 4 days prior to the expire, additional marigns would be required in an incremental manner.
That’s all for now I guess. Thanks in advance and tagging the man himself @nithin.
For ITM Long Options we collect Physical Delivery margins from expiry minus 4 days as stipulated by the exchange, as you can see above on E -1 Day ie. on Wednesday this margin is 70% of applicable VAR + ELM + ADHOC, instead of this we block 50% of the contract value which covers all the required margins.
For say if I require 100 rs as a margin to sell an Option so the minimum fund in my account should be 50 rs and the maximum 50 rs (50%) of the margin can be obtained by pledging stocks/mfs. That’s what I read in Varsity. Am I right ??
So now, are new margin rules affecting this margin obtained from pledging stocks/mfs?
