“In the trading business, the only raw material is capital. However, when traders and investors invest their capital in stocks, their ability to initiate fresh trades is impaired since their capital is tied up. We at SAMCO have aimed to solve this problem with our Zero Balance trading account,” Mr. Modi added.

Through IntraPlus, traders can now leverage the power of their holdings even if they have no liquid cash in their trading account and initiate trades and never miss an opportunity. The design of the product is such that gives complete flexibility to customers.

With SAMCO IntraPlus, clients can get margins against shares up to 90% of value (after haircut) against securities (shares and ETFs) owned by them to trade Intraday in the NSE Equity, Future & Options as well as Currency Derivatives along with the BSE Equity segment.

This is a revolutionary product as existing facilities in this segment doesn’t allow a trader to truly utilize the power of their holdings. In most cases, the ability to utilize holdings is restricted to the amount of cash held and that’s a huge impediment for traders.

Explaining about the product, Mr. Modi added “Let’s say the value of your holdings post haircut is Rs. 1,00,000 and your Cash Available is Rs. 0. When you pledge your holdings with us, you can enter intraday trades with Margins of upto Rs. 1 Lakh even though your cash available is Rs. 0!”
