How to Use the Zerodha Margin Calculator Before Taking Your 1st Trade?

Before step into the discussion of Zerodha Margin Calculator, let’s get acquainted with the concept “Margin” in the trading field. Let’s assume that a trader is engaged in the stock market and doesn’t have enough funds to initiate a trade. Here, in this situation, he can get a loan from his brokerage firm to purchase securities. It’s called buying on margin. For obvious reason, borrowing money isn’t without its costs. The charge is not static, brokerage firms fix the rate according to their demand. The slabs of margins are different as per the security.

What is Margin in Trading?

If we simplify the concept, Margin the difference between investor’s holding amount value and the loan amount from a broker. Margin trading is the act of borrowing money to buy securities, often known as buying on margin. Here, the trader or buyer has to pay a certain percentage of an asset’s value and borrows the rest from the broker. The broker plays a lender’s role here. After squaring off the position, the margin can be settled.

Features of Margin in Trading

In order to clarify the margin trading properly, here we’ve tried to list some of the features:

  • The margin payment and repayment duration vary for different stock brokers.
  • In case of converting any shares from intraday to delivery, you need to have that amount in your account. Margin used in intraday can’t be added to delivery.
  • As I have mentioned above that margin calculation differs according to the security type. Like in Zerodha, in the equity section traders can get maximum 15 times, commodity 70 times and F & O 33 times. (Margin amount can be changed as per the market demand)

Zerodha Margin Calculator

It can be assumed that the concept of margin is clear now. So, in continuation with the previous discussion, we can move into the main topic  Zerodha Margin Calculator.
