Why is the withdrawable balance negative?
The withdrawable balance will be negative in the following scenarios:
- If the Zerodha account is in debit balance. To learn more, see Why is the balance in the funds statement displayed as negative?
- If the funds are yet to be settled to the Zerodha account. In India, exchanges follow a rolling settlement cycle. Exchanges require T+1 day to settle funds from selling equities and F&O trades to the Zerodha account before they can be withdrawn. Until then, the withdrawal amount is displayed in negative, indicating that it is still being processed for settlement. The withdrawable balance becomes positive once the funds are settled.
