Asked a question last year

Hello Team, I have some question regarding pledging of shares. 1) Is there any interest rate on collateral margin. 2) for how much time period I can pledge my shares. 3) and can I trade in carryforward positions or positional trades in F&O with the use of collateral margin? Thank You @fyers

Fyers allows pledging of shares for free. We just need to be careful not to overtrade using collateral margin for stock options. 23-Mar-2020 is one day where FnO traders either minted money or became bankrupt due to leveraged trades with margin.
