Example to understand Margin Pledge

Post a good earnings season, say you are bullish on the IT sector and decide to sell 20 lots of Infosys 1480 put option (PE) trading at a premium of ₹38. Here is how your position will play out with and without Margin Pledge.

Option trading with and without Margin Pledge

Position With Margin Pledge Without Margin Pledge
Available capital – self *---------------- (a) ₹10,00,000 ₹10,00,000
Funding availed under Margin Pledge (margin received against stocks pledged worth ₹13 lakh after deducting 20% haircut) ------------ (b) ₹10,00,000 -
Total trading capital ------------(c) ₹20,00,000 ₹10,00,000
Lots that can be traded as per total trading capital (c) 20 10
Profit (assuming option premium becomes 0 on expiry) ₹2,99,600 ₹1,49,800
Interest paid on margin availed (assuming position is held for 20 days) ₹6,570 -
Take home profit ₹2,93,030 ₹1,49,800
Return on available capital (self) (a) 29% 15%

In the above example, you were able to leverage your existing stock holdings and almost double your profits from 15% to a whopping 29% with Margin Pledge.

*Note: As per exchange guidelines, clients must have 50% margin in cash (collateral) to undertake F&O positions. The balance can be non-cash collateral. In case of a shortfall in cash collateral which is funded by non-cash collateral, then Delayed Payment Charges will be applicable.

Important note: Interest will not be levied on margins received under Margin Pledge, until the margins are utilised by you.

Here's all you need to know about Margin Pledge

Margin pledge is a facility where you can pledge your existing stocks with the broker and in return, the broker will give you capital to trade or invest in the stock market.

Say you want to take an intraday position worth ₹1 lakh but you only have ₹50,000 in your trading account. You need another ₹50,000 to place this order. Now assuming you have shares worth ₹70,000 in your Demat account, you can pledge them and get additional margin for trading. In this case, assuming a 20% haircut, you will get ₹56,000 as collateral margin helping you place your desired intraday order.

Margin Pledge is available in Intraday, Futures & Options (writing / selling only), across all segments – equity and currency. You can even use margins received under Margin Pledge and take fresh positions under MTF (eMargin) and enjoy unlimited holding period. Know how you can trade with zero capital.

Haircut is a SEBI mandated mechanism, which protects the broker from unexpected price movement. Every stock has a pre-decided haircut, which is deducted from the overall funding amount. For example, if the total value of stocks in your portfolio is ₹1 lakh and the stock haircut is 10%, then the broker will give you funding of ₹90,000.

Margin will be added to your ‘Available to trade’ balance on the next trading day.

Margins or limits will be credited to your m.Stock account on the next trading day (after margin pledge request is raised). However, interest will be charged only from the day you actually start using the margin.
