Implication of F&O peak margin debit & credit in your bank statement

4 Mins 13 Apr 2022 0 COMMENT

As per regulatory mandates, margins have to be collected upfront for all Trades in equity and derivatives. At ICICIdirect, we have always ensured that before entering any trade, applicable margins have been blocked in your account.

Further, regulations require that the upfront margin should be in possession of broker instead of only allocation in the Bank account.

To comply with this, for any transaction entered by you, the applicable margin (which is blocked in your account during the day) will be debited at the end of day and any un-utilised margin will be credited back to your bank account.

This will have no implication on your trades, margins or positions, only that you will see additional debit and credit entries in your Bank account.

What is peak margin which will be debited and credited?

Your highest margin utilization on the Trade Date or highest Limit utilization on order placement level & status change (such as cancellation) is considered as Margin required for the day.

This money will be debited in the evening and any un-utilised margin will be credited back to you bank account.

If I place an order but that’s not executed, will that be debited and credited back to Bank account?

Limit utilization and hence Peak Margin happens at order placement level (so even before order execution Limit gets utilized) across all products in F&O.

Thus even if this order gets cancelled/ rejected/position is squared off and limits are released but Peak Margin Amount won't get reduced and it will remain blocked while deallocating funds from FNO Allocation. However, available limits as per released limits can be utilized by you for trading.

To illustrate with an example: If customer creates position requiring margin amount of 1 lac at market rate and squares off that position at 1 lac (No profit no loss) still the peak margin will be 1 Lac. If customer places Buy order of Rs 1 lac margin amount and cancels this order, then Peak Margin would still be Rs.1 Lac. In both of the above cases it will remain blocked while deallocating FNO cash allocation.

If later customer places trades such that Limit utilization doesn’t increase more than Rs. 1 Lac till then Peak Margin won’t change for such orders. But if Limit utilization increases more than Rs. 1 Lac then Peak Margin amount will get increased accordingly.

Is applicable for customers who are already in the Ledger Model including NEO customers?

It is applicable to Resident Individual (RI) customers 3 in 1 Account, NRI Customers & not applicable to Running Account RI Customers. There is no change in NEO customers.

Will I be able withdraw the allocation if have not put a trade and take back to my bank account?

Yes, if you have not placed any order then withdraw funds from allocation.

How can I withdraw. Will my limits or funds get blocked or reduced?

If the you are trying to deallocate the amount which falls within Peak Margin, you will not be allowed to deallocate such amount, and Peak Margin Pop Up will be displayed with option to ‘Debit the Peak Margin Now’. Once the you click on the “Debit Peak Margin Now” option, peak margin amount will be debited from FNO allocation and FNO Block For Trade balances and will be credited back to customer’s FNO allocation at the same time. 

Post this, you can deallocate amount from his FNO allocation or FNO Block For Trade balances.

What is impact on deallocation of funds from F&O allocation?

If you are trying to deallocate the amount which falls within Peak Margin, you will not be allowed to deallocate such amount, and Peak Margin Pop Up will be displayed with option to Debit the Peak Margin.
