Why does putting a SLM or SLL order requires extra margin for future trades. Putting an SLM or SLL requires same margin as creating new position even when you have a position open. Is there any workaround?

Hi Atish,

You can either place a stop loss order or a take profit order at a single time. If you wish to place both orders simultaneously, then you need to have an additional margin for one of the above-mentioned orders!

If you are placing only a stop loss order and the margin requirement is shown in the order window, you can ignore it as the additional margin will not be blocked.

Hope this clarifies!
