Stock Plus-Get Margin Against Your Shares For Intra-day and Positional Trading

Published: Sunday, 18 October 2020

Stock Plus allows you to get exposure/ margin against your shares by pledging them as collateral. 


  • Zero cash balance required in Trading Account. No need to maintain any cash vs collateral ratio
  • NO INTEREST APPLICABLE on the usage of collateral for trading whatsoever  
  • Brokerage Rs 9 per executed order 
  • Great for Option sellers who can pledge their holdings and get collateral to trade for their positional trades 
  • Get collateral against 350+ stocks and ETF's. 


Eg Say you wish to Buy 1 Lot Bank Nifty in your Trading Account for which approx 1 Lac carry forward margin is required. Now if you have stocks valued at 2 lac in your account you can pledge them and get collateral post haircut and initiate that trade. 


Points to Note

Collateral and Haircut: Collateral is calculated after deducting haircut from the value of the pledged stock. eg If the value of holding is Rs 1 lac and haircut percentage is 25% then collateral shall be Rs 75000. 

List of Stocks and ETF: Please check the list of stocks and ETF along with the haircut percentage that is accepted as collateral from this Link.

Segments: Trading against collateral is allowed on the below segments
