How do HNI TRADERS make money - Pledge your Stock, Bonds, MFs and G-Sec for Trading F&O

Monday, 26 December 2022

Hey Trader

Do you know, You can now pledge almost 4000 approved securities (Stocks, Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs), Sovereign Gold Bond (SGB), Mutual Fund (MF), Government Securities (G-Sec) to get collateral margin which can be used for trading futures and options on equity and currency.

The margin against each type of collateral, however, will be made available after a haircut, to mitigate the risk of a fall in the price of the asset you’ve pledged, and the amount of haircut also varies within the asset type. 

How do HNI TRADERS make money ?

So usually, what HNI Traders do, they park their money in any of such instruments which is paying them 5 to 7% interest and they pledge that security as a collateral and they trade and whatever the trading profit comes, they make an extra 5 to 7% on that. 

For Example: You can pledge Sovereign Gold Bonds (SGBs) to get collateral margin at SAS Online. The collateral margins will be received after a (%) of deduction called a haircut. So for SGB hair cut is 10%, For every ₹ 10,00,000 worth of Sovereign Gold Bond (SGBs) pledged, you will receive a collateral margin of ₹ 9,00,000.

The biggest advantage for an Option Seller, he does not have to pay the hard cash to the exchange for option selling.

With SAS Online you can pledge your Stocks, Bonds, Mutual Funds, Gold Exchange-Traded Funds, Fixed Deposits and Government Securities to get collateral for you to trade.
