Why can't I use the same funds to trade in both equity and commodity segments?

Zerodha facilitates equity and commodity trades through two separate companies - Zerodha Broking Limited and Zerodha Commodities Private Limited. Your equity and commodity funds are maintained separately with these two companies in compliance with regulations. Hence, you will not be able to use the same funds to trade in both equity and commodity segments.

We are working on merging the two companies so that our clients can use one single ledger for their trades.

Presently, if you want to use the funds from the equity segment in commodities (or vice-versa), you will need to first withdraw the funds to your bank account and then add your funds back in the segment of your choosing.
