  4. Zerodha Equity Cover Order (CO) Margin Calculator

    CO order is also an Intraday product with one additional information which is stop-loss. Stop loss is the limit of loss you are willing to take in case trade moves against your directional view. Since you are providing more specific information to the broker in terms of time and limit of loss you will bear, the margins required is ever lower than MIS product type. Margin requirements will vary based on the Stop loss price.Zerodha Equity CO is purely for Intraday traders so all cover orders (CO) will be automatically squared off around 3:20 PM. In a CO you can place Intraday buy/sell market orders with a compulsory stop loss for higher leverage.

    For Equity CO Orders, the margin is ranged from 5x to 30x, which completely depends on your stop-loss amount. Please refer Zerodha Equity CO Margin Calculator to get more details by specific script.

  5. Zerodha Equity Bracket Order (BO) Margin Calculator

    BO is a special type of order where you can place Intraday buy/sell limit orders with a target and compulsory stop loss (with a trailing SL option) for a higher leverage than MIS product type. Trailing stop loss (SL) is a technique to adjust the SL as and when the script moves in favor of the trade. In BO, first you place the limit order for the buying or selling. As soon as this main order is executed the system will place two more orders (profit-taking and stop-loss). When one of the two orders (profit taking or stop loss) gets executed, the other order will get canceled automatically.

    When you place a bracket order, you get an option to either place a fixed stop-loss order, or also an ability to trail your stop loss. What this would mean is that if the contract/stock moves in your direction by a particular number of ticks, the stop loss will go up/down based on if you are long or short automatically. A tick is a minimum a particular stock/contract can move. 1 tick on Nifty is 0.05.

    It is also important to note that a bracket order is an Intraday order and needs to be squared off before the Intraday closing of 3:10 pm. Margin required for BO is same as CO.

    For Equity BO Orders Margin is ranged from 5x to 30x, which is completely dependent on your stop-loss amount. Please refer Zerodha Equity BO Margin Calculator to get more details by specific script.

For BO/CO Orders – margin requirements depended on stop-loss amount and was min 1% of contract value for index derivatives now changed to 1.25%. For equity/stocks derivatives it was 2% now it is 2.25%.

Intraday Margin for commodities and currency will remain the same. As there was no exposure for commodities so no changes in commodities.
