Why does my buying power not include profits or credits from the previous trading day?
The buying power (or available margin) in your Arihant account does not include any credits from profit or sales made on the previous date (T1) due to the upfront margin requirements applicable from September 2020 onwards. If a trading session falls on a settlement holiday or the settlement is delayed on a given day, the following balances will not be a part of your available margin:
- Intraday profits - Any intraday profits from the previous trade day for F&O and the previous two trade days for equity.
- Other F&O credits - Any other derivative segment credits (i.e. premium from options sold, marked-to-market profit, etc.) from the previous trade day.
The above credits will reflect in your available margins after they are settled by the exchange.
