Normally clients buy and sell stocks with their own money. However, some specific stocks may look attractive at some point in time either because of market conditions or some sector/company specific news. If clients don’t have the required funds to trade in a particular stock, then the client can opt for margin trading facility. Margin trading facility helps clients to trade in stocks where they are required to put in certain percentage as the margin amount (similar as a down payment in any loan product). The margin requirements will vary from stock to stock, SMIFS Limited will fund the rest of the transaction so that the clients are able to purchase these share with an interest charged as and when clients give consent and register himself for MTF Segment and avail the Margin Trading facility. The interests are applied to the Margin Trading Account unless the clients decide to make payment.
There are restrictions on the stocks which the clients can buy on Margin Trading. The Securities and Exchange Board of India regulates which stocks are marginable. As a general rule and practice we don’t allow clients to purchase penny stocks or Initial Public Offerings (IPO) on Margin as risks involved with these types of stocks is high. SMIFS Limited can independently decide not to margin certain stocks, so check what restrictions exist on your Margin Account. The buying power of a margin trading account changes daily depending on the price movement of the marginable securities in the account.
