Fyers Margin Examples

  1. Equity: For example, assuming the leverage/margins is 16x on TCS stocks, it means that with ₹10,000 in your trading account, you can take a position of up-to ₹1,60,000.
  2. Futures & Options selling: Let's assume that the SPAN + Exposure margins for 1 lot of Nifty futures are ₹60,000. A leverage of 4 times (4x) means that you will be able to take a position with just ₹15,000 (15,000*4 = 60,000).
  3. Options Buying: For option buyers, SPAN + Exposure margins are not applicable. To initiate a trade, you will have to pay the entire premium for 1 lot. However, Fyers provided some leverage for near-month Nifty contracts. Normally, to buy Nifty 10800CE you'll have to pay the entire premium of ₹5250. (70 Price* 75 Lot Size). However, if you use cover orders to buy, you will get some margins/leverage and you can buy it for a lesser amount. With a leverage of 1.3x, you will be able to buy 1 lot with just ₹4040 (5250/1.3).
