Margin is the minimum amount required to buy/sell. Margins are always collected in advance. Various margins applicable are:
1. Span Margin:
SPAN margin is the upfront Margin required by the exchanges in F&O segment. It is calculated on a portfolio (a collection of futures and option positions) based approach.
2. Additional/ Exposure Margin:
'Exposure Margin' is the margin blocked over and above the SPAN to cushion for any MTM losses. Both the SPAN and Exposure margins are specified by the exchange. So at the time of initiating a futures trade, the client has to adhere to the initial margin requirement. The entire initial margin (SPAN + Exposure) is blocked by the exchange. Span + Exposure = Initial Margin (Total Margin)
3. VAR Margin: (Value at risk margin):
The VaR Margin is a margin intended to cover the largest loss that can be encountered on 99% of the days (99% Value at Risk). For liquid stocks, the margin covers one-day losses while for illiquid stocks, it covers three-day losses so as to allow the Exchange to liquidate the position over three days.These Margins are collected upfront for the trading in the Equity segments (normal Equity and MTF).
4. GSM / ASM Margin:
GSM stands for 'Graded Surveillance Measure' and ASM stands for ‘Additional Surveillance Measure'. In order to enhance market integrity and safeguard the interest of investors, Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) and Exchanges, have been introducing various enhanced surveillance measures such as reduction in price band, periodic call auction and transfer of securities to Trade to Trade segment from time to time. These additional surveillance initiative is part of SEBI and the Exchanges initiative to enhance market integrity and safeguard the interest of investors. More details and Navia’s risk management policy on ASM framework is found here and GSM framework is found here.
Any order placed under MIS and CO & BO will automatically be squared off within half an hour before the market closes for respective exchange segments or if the Intraday MTM reaches 60% whichever is earlier.

Navia offers trading only in the non Agri products in MCX exchange and Agri products are not allowed for trading in the Commodities trading platform offered by Navia. Further in the non Agri segment Navia does not allow for delivery of contracts and the same is restricted in the system.
Navia’s right to Change the margins under any conditions without any notice.
Navia shall withdraw /reduce the intraday (MIS/CO/BO) leverage /margin at any time, during the trading day or on any special day where Navia anticipates higher volatility in the market due to any of the following reasons without any notice,
What are the terms for the squaring /close out off the Positions/ Stocks etc by Navia ?
Navia reserves and retains the right to sell or square off the client’s open positions in any segment of any exchange and the Client Unpaid Securities Account (CUSA) account stocks/ collaterals / demat account stocks with POA etc. under the following conditions listed below and Navia shall not be held responsible for any loss/charges due to the square off /non- square off positions as per this policy.
1) When Mark-to Market (MTM) loss breaches 60% or more of Capital/Margin
Once the MTM loss exceeds 60% of Capital/margin (which means that client has lost 60% or more of his capital/margin) for both Intraday (MIS/CO/BO products) and carry forward positions (NRML product), Navia shall cancel all open/ Pending orders and shall square off the entire positions of client at market. Further, the client shall be put in square off mode and shall not be able to place any fresh orders. Since some of these actions are not automated in the system, Navia can only square off positions on a best effort basis. It is possible that due to extreme volatility / high leverages used by the clients / market freeze or any other conditions, the MTM loss may exceed even 100% of capital / margin placed by the client before Navia can square off the positions. In all / any events Navia cannot be held responsible for such losses or charges incurred. It is the responsibility and onus of the client to continuously monitor his positions and bring in additional margin required as when the MTM loss is incurred so as to ensure that MTM loss does not exceed 60% of capital/margin placed where in the above square off condition is triggered. Under no circumstances can the client transfer his/her responsibility to monitor his/her positions to Navia. In the event that MTM loss exceeds 100% of the capital / margin, Navia reserves the right to liquidate the client DP stocks in any manner and at any time it deems fit.
2) When there is a Margin Shortfall on Carry forward positions
It is the responsibility and onus of the client to continuously monitor his positions and bring in additional margin required as when client may incur MTM loss or margins are increased by the exchange so as to ensure that there is no margin shortfall.
Navia shall reduce or completely square off the clients open positions to reduce the margin shortfall deficit. Margin shortfall is computed as = Span + additional margin + Realized MTM P&L and unrealized MTM Losses divided by Ledger Balance + Collateral + Pay in if any and then the result multiplied by100). Since some of these actions are not automated in the system, Navia can only square off positions on a best effort basis. It is possible that due to extreme volatility / high leverages used by the clients / market freeze or any other conditions, the Margin shortfall may exceed much beyond the required capital / margin placed by the client before Navia can successfully square off / reduce the positions. In all / any events Navia cannot be held responsible for such losses or charges incurred. Under no circumstances can the client transfer his/her responsibility to monitor his/her positions to Navia. In the event that margin utilization exceeds 100% of the capital / margin, Navia reserves the right to liquidate the client DP stocks in any manner and at any time it deems fit.
In the Equity Future /Commodity Future there are possibilities of freezing of contracts at any time during the trading hours. During this freeze period of the contracts, Navia shall not be in a position to square off the positions as per the RMS policy. Hence In this scenario, Navia shall not be held responsible for any losses due to the non-squaring off the positions.
3) MIS / Cover Order (CO) and Bracket order (BO) –time based Square off:
Any positions taken under MIS / Cover Order (CO) and Bracket order (BO) product shall be automatically squared off, at any time within the last half an hour of market close for the respective exchanges and segments if the positions continue to be open at that time. The clients when taking such positions under the MIS / Cover Order (CO) and Bracket order (BO product for availing higher leverages is aware of the risks involved in such time based square off. Client has the option to convert a MIS position to normal position (NRML) if adequate margin is available in the trading account. BO and CO positions cannot be converted but can be exited. This client should convert his/her MIS open positions or exit his/her BO/CO open positions before the beginning of auto square off mode of the MIS/Co/BO product. Since these are system-based actions and successful triggering of time based square off may depend variables which maybe beyond the control of Navia, Navia does not in any manner guarantee the successful triggering of time based square off under MIS product. It is the responsibility and onus of the client to continuously monitor his positions taken under the MIS product and square them off well before the stipulated cut off time for time based square off. In the event of trading system failure during this time, Navia shall on a best effort basis square off clients MIS positions in alternate system, if available and possible. Due to thousands of such positions to be squared of manually it may not be possible for Navia to successfully square of clients MIS/CO/BO positions due to system failure. Under such circumstances client cannot hold Navia responsible for any losses/charges.
4) Margin Call square off – Margin Trade Funding (MTF) account:
Navia shall make the margin Call under the MTF trading account as per SEBI guidelines. As long as there is a MTF position in the client account a MTF report would be emailed to client on daily basis. If there is a margin call it will be reflected in this report. If the Shortage / Excess value in the report below is a debit then it means there is a margin call and client need to immediately bring in the required shortage either in the form of funds or securities. If the client does not bring in the required margins, then Navia can liquidate/sell the shares (funded shares and collateral) if the client fails to meet the margin call requirements.

What are the Risk Parameters measured by the RMS for monitoring & squaring off the Positions?
Conditions under which a client may not be allowed to take further/fresh position or the broker may close the existing position of a client:
We have margin-based RMS system. Client may take exposure up to the amount of margin available/shortage of margin as per our RMS policy of the company. The existing position of the client is also liable to square off/Close out without giving notice due to shortage of margin/non making of payment for their pay in obligation/outstanding debts. The following are the condition under which the client is not allowed to trade further
MCX has introduced Gold Option contract from 17th October 2017 onwards, and 28th November 2017 was the first expiry of the Option Contract. This document illustrates the option settlement process on the expiry day and the required margins prior to the expiry of the contract, if the contracts are not closed by the client.
An important aspect to note with commodity options is that these are options on Futures and not really the spot market. If you look at Nifty options, the underlying is the spot Nifty 50 index value. However, if you were to look at an option on Crude Oil, the underlying here is not the spot price of Crude Oil. This is quite intuitive as we do not have a spot market for Crude Oil or for that matter any commodities in India. However, we do have a vibrant futures market. Hence the commodity options are based on the commodity futures market.
If one were to talk about the crude oil options, then you need to remember the following –
So in a sense, this can be considered a derivative on a derivative.
Option terminology that you need to understand.
At the Money (ATM) Options = The strikes closest to the settlement price is considered ATM
Close to Money (CTM) – Two strikes above and two strikes below ATM are considered CTM
In the Money (ITM) = All call option strike below the ATM and all put option strikes above the ATM are considered ITM options
Out of the Money (OTM) = All call option strike above the ATM and all put option strikes below the ATM are considered Out of the Money (OTM) options
Devolvement into Futures contract
The term Devolvement means conversion of an ITM/CTM option contract to future contract. Assume you have an ITM (including CTM) option, and upon expiry the option will be converted (or devolved) into a Futures position. Now, we all know that a futures position requires margins to be parked with the broker. How do we account for this? I mean, when I go long on option, I just have to pay for the premium right? Naturally, at the time of buying the option, I would not park additional margin anticipating that the option ‘might’ get devolved into a futures position.
To circumvent this, the concept of ‘Devolvement Margin’ was introduced.
Commodity options will expire few days before the first tender date of the futures contract. This means, there will be few days gap between the expiry of the futures contract and the options contract
Margin calculation with Premium.
On the first day margin will get charged, based on the premium if the option contract is in profit, so in this case the margin requirements will be as follows,
What is the effect of the devolvement margin in the accounting process?
Presently this margin is not part of the span file and it is provided by the exchange at the end of the trading day. So the back office will debit this margin in the back end and this devolvement margin is not reflected in the trading system.
Navia’s risk management Policy on Devolvement.
Navia shall follow the following process and shall square off the entire ITM and CTM contracts before devolving to the future contract. The Process is given below.
Policy on the limit setting in the NEAT terminals.
Navia with reference to the NSE circular reference No. 80/2012 issued on October 2012 directing the Trading member to set limits at various levels in their respective trading terminals. Navia has set such limits based on the risk mitigation and safe guard mechanism from “fat finger trades” on the following basis:
1. Quantity limit for each order
2. Value limit for each order
3. User value limit for each user ID
4. Branch value limit for each branch ID
5. Spread order Quantity and Value Limit.
Further, if at any time if the NEAT terminal set limits exceeds, Navia shall review and reset the limits as per the risk mechanism of the Company and shall allow the client’s to trade. But in the meantime, if there are any order rejections or the trading down time, due to exceeding the various set limit, the client agrees that, Navia shall not able to be responsible or liable for any kind of damages / losses / opportunity losses arising out of exceeding the NEAT set limit.
Contract notes and margin statement
NAVIA will issue contract notes & margin statements to its clients within 24 hours of the close of trading. Along with the Contract Note, the client shall also be furnished with a copy of the daily margin status which is also available to be viewed on their respective Back office reports available online.
