What does the margin required amount on the Kite order window mean?

A new feature has been introduced on the Kite order window that provides real-time information about the margin required for a trade before placing the order. The margin calculation takes into account the selected product and order type.

In the case of F&O positions, the margin required for the placed order is calculated by considering the margin benefit obtained if there are hedged open positions in the portfolio.

When exiting positions, the order window may display the margin required, indicating that after closing the specified leg, the portfolio margin utilized will increase by that particular amount.

Did you know? There may be minor variations between the margins shown on the margin window and the actual blocked margins on the terminal for certain instruments.
