I do have 5 long trades of f&o since last week for September expiry. Do i need to exit from all by today as i do not have enough margin or else i can hold it?
@Shruthi Can you.
Increase in margin requirement depends on the type of position you are holding.
If you are holding Long Option positions and if those are ITM, then exchange blocks physical delivery margin from expiry minus 4 days. This won’t be applicable if the position is OTM.
If you are holding a Short Option or Futures position then the margin requirements will increase only on the expiry day to 40% of the contract value or the SPAN + Exposure margin (whichever is higher). You can check out more details here.
