Will Zerodha give me margin on the shares I hold and what can I use my collateral margin for?
Yes. We provide margins on stocks, ETFs and mutual funds that you hold. This process is called ‘pledging’. This margin can be used for trading Equity Intraday, Futures long & short & Options writing. To know more about pledging and how it works click here . Commodity futures and options cannot be traded using collateral margins.
The number of securities which can be pledged is limited member-wise by the clearing corporation. You will not be able to pledge your holding if the overall maximum pledge limit has been reached for your stock/ETF.
