Hello,

Total value = Free cash + Margin used.

Margin used will be a positive value if funds are debited from your trading account. It will be a negative value if funds are credited in your trading account.

Funds are debited from your trading account if you take a new position and/or make a loss in your closed positions.

Funds are credited to your trading account if you square off an open position/sell stock from demat and/or make a profit in your closed positions.
