How much margins/leverage does Zerodha provide?
You can trade using Margin intraday square off (MIS) and Cover Order (CO) for equity to get up to 5 times (20% margin) leverage for intraday. So, if you have ₹1 lakh, you can buy or short stocks for intraday up to ₹5 lakhs. Based on our RMS policy, the list of stocks ( DOC ) and the leverage provided change. Due to peak margin rules by SEBI, there is no leverage offered for equity F&O, currency, and commodities segment.
Did you know? Peak margin regulation was introduced in 2020 to ensure that brokers don’t take large risks by providing high leverages to the customer. Today all the brokerage firms in India can offer the same maximum intraday leverage.
