Here's the logic behind SEBI's new rule to impose margins on selling shares from your holdings.

Say you sell shares from your holdings on Monday.

As per the current settlement cycle of T+2 days, the shares will be debited from your demat on Wed.

But that T+2 days cycle leaves a possibility of you transferring those shares to someone on Tuesday i.e. before the shares are debited from your demat on Wednesday.

This creates a short delivery settlement risk.

Brokers already have systems in place to avoid this.

But still this might happen for about 5% of the times whereas 95% of the times the settlement is done correctly.

Now, SEBI's new rules will make sure that those 5% cases are also taken care of and the risk is completely avoided.

There's a workaround for this.

1⃣ As per new SEBI rules, buying and selling of shares will require upfront margin.

Eg: If you want to buy shares worth ₹1 lakh then you must have ₹20K margin cash in your trading account & the balance of ₹80K to be paid within 2 days.

2⃣ If you want to sell ₹1 lakh worth of shares from your holdings then too you must have minimum ₹20K margin cash in your account, failing which penalties will be levied.

You can keep extra cash / or can pledge your other holdings for the stipulated margin required.

3⃣ Buy Today Sell Tomorrow (BTST) closed.

Shares bought today cannot be sold tomorrow.

Eg: If you bought shares on Monday then you can sell those shares only after recieving the delivery of shares in your demat account i.e. you can sell on T+2 day, Wednesday.

🔸 Have you ever noticed how a stock quickly moves up after it drops to a certain price level?

🔸 People say "the stock has taken support" or "bounced back from support level"

Let's understand why the bounce happens;

🔸 The basic logic behind support level (also known as demand zone) is related to how big institutional investors buy shares.

🔸 When institutional investors take a position they have a huge qty of shares to buy & so they want the order to be filled at a particular price.

🔸 Let's say the stock of XYZ Ltd. is currently trading at ₹525.

🔸 But institutional investors want to buy 5 crore shares of XYZ Ltd. at ₹500.

🔸 So they put in a buy limit order of 5 crore shares at ₹500.

🔸 This order now remains pending in the order book.

📕 A Quick Guide on OPEN INTEREST (OI)

1⃣ What is OI?
OI is simply the number of outstanding contracts (open positions) for a given stock

For eg: A stock having OI of 1 lakh means there are 1 lakh open positions (long & short)

* OI data is available only for F&O segment

How is OI calculated?

2⃣ As the name suggests OI represents the "interest" of traders in a given stock

For eg: If trader A has 10 long positions and trader B has 7 short positions then the total OI will be 17

That means buying interest is more than selling interest

3⃣ What is Put Call Ratio (PCR)?

In F&O terminology;
🔸 Long positions = Calls
🔸 Short positions = Puts

PCR = Puts / Calls

4⃣ Calculating PCR in the above eg:
Calls = 10
Puts = 7

So PCR = 7/10 = 0.7
