What does the margin required amount on the Kite order window mean?
We have a new feature on the Kite order window that displays the margin required for the trade before you place the order. The margin required is updated here in real time, based on the product and order type selected.
For F&O positions, the margin required for the order you place is calculated after including the margin benefit you get if you have hedged open positions in your portfolio.
If you are exiting positions, the order window may show the margin required which means after closing the given leg, portfolio margin used will go up by that amount.
Note - The feature is in beta and you might find small differences in the margins you see on the margin window and what is blocked on the terminal for certain instruments. Please report if you find a considerable difference by creating a ticket below.
