Online discount broking is a new concept that has started to gain popularity in India for the
past few years. Some of the well-known discount brokerage firms in India are Zerodha,
RKSV Securities, Tradejini, Compositedge, etc. Zerodha Stock Broking Ltd. was one of the
first firms to introduce this new concept in India in 2010.
Discount brokerage as a concept began in the US in the late 1990s and early 2000s, and now
dominates the business there.
One of the major benefits of trading using discount brokers are that it helps in churning the
high value traders portfolio aggressively intra-day, as it allows them to keep most of the
gains they make. It breaks the traditional barrier of percentage brokerage.

6) Margins:-
For intraday trading, there are two types of margin options:-
MIS (Margin Intraday Square off)
Where broker assigns a margin of exposure say 5 to 10 times. That means, if a client
has 100Rs. and the share price is 20rs. If he has a margin exposure of 10 times, he can
buy up to (100/20)* 10 = 50 shares.
Cover Order: Clients get more leverage, up to 20 times exposure. But the broker
provides a risk management tool of compulsory stop-loss order. With this, a limit is
kept, say 5-6% as acceptable loss beyond this the stop-loss order is triggered and
order is stopped. The client has the flexibility to place the stop-loss order within the
specified limit.
For delivery trading, margin is on a cash and carry basis that is full amount paid for

Each day at 3.15pm, the cut off time or square off time starts in intraday, where the client can
either convert intraday to delivery basis with enough required funds or square off the trading.
For futures- Clients pay a fixed percentage of margin to enter into a futures contact.
Margin includes Span/ Exposure margin calculated by NSE on a daily basis.
In Futures Intra-day, exposure is given on margin amount. Here it is 2.5%. And daily
mark to market
At any time client should maintain 70% of margin. If margin goes below this, the broker
will automatically square off.
