How Will Peak Margin Affect for Trading in Cash Segment | 5paisa FAQs

How will peak margin affect my margins for trading in the Cash Segment?

For intraday: For now; there will be no change because currently exposure allowed is less than 10X. However, going forward the exposures will be reduced to 5X.

For Delivery sell: Currently, we release 100% of Sell value for purchasing any other stock or to take derivative position. However. effective December 1st we will only be able to release 80% of the sell value for that day. It means, if you sell a stock worth Rs.1,00,000. Then only 80,000 will be released as margin which can be used to purchase any other stock. From next day i.e. T+1, 100% sell value will be available for trading.

For Buying back delivery sell on same day: If you sell stocks, we will release 80% margin under presumption that we will be able to deliver these shares to exchange in early pay-in. (a) If you don't take any further position on such margin release against sale there will be no change and you can buy these shares back. (b) However, if you take further positions in other stocks and either carry such position or square it off later during the day and also buy the original shares sold against which margin was released then, it will attract margin penalty because, there will be no sell obligation and we will not be able to do early pay-in to exchange.
