Why does the Kite fund balance not include profits or credits from previous trading days?
The funds available for trading are shown in the Available margin on Kite funds. However, the Kite fund balance does not include profits or credits from previous trading days due to the settlement holiday. To learn more about settlement holidays, see What is a settlement holiday and its impact? If the settlement is delayed on a given day due to the settlement holiday, the following balances will not be included in the available margin until they are settled:
- Intraday profits from the previous trading day for F&O and equity.
- F&O proceeds, such as premiums from options sold and marked-to-market profit, from the previous trading day.
These credits will be reflected in the available margin once they are settled. To learn more about the settlement cycle, see What does settlement cycle mean?
