I was trying to hedge Copper futures by buying Sep contract and selling Oct contract. But it is asking for additional margin. How exactly are calendar spread margins to be availed?

We desperately need both SL as well as target orders to be placed simultaneously given how this current market behaves with low liquidity conditions. Had suffered the worst ever loss because for several seconds Fyers didn't show where the price was heading and I didn't exit thinking it is just a routine pullback after breakout. Basically when we place just a target sell order, we can't place another trigger SL order because the application treats it as options selling and expects us to have ridiculously high margins, thanks to SEBI.
Given its been highlighted multiple times that the prices and chart info don't get updated on Fyers web, can't we have BO enabled for options? For futures we already have this feature. No option will head to both a higher and lower price simultaneously nor is there a threat of it getting partially filled before reversing to SL leading to some peak margin issues. During opening hours, option prices rise rapidly due to panic short covering and before we even realise, it crashes down by several rupees.
I am sure those who trade in (eg) Tata Motors would have observed this in particular that your MTM might have shown 20k, even 40k for seconds before coming down to 0 or even negative.
We still need to refresh 500 times to get valid data and right now instead booking profit on a BO, it instead bought more quantity pushing me from profit to loss and this order is without SL or target. Just a quantity which is not getting closed.
This is really happening so frequently now that whenever we place a commodity bracket order, Fyers web application freezes and it auto squares off the order without the target or SL being hit. I lost a potential 25k profit just now.
I want to use excel strategy for firing orders. Here are a couple of issues I appear to face.
I would need a marketwatch linked to Excel and versions 2007 and later (the kind with less shortcuts and mouse based commands for everything) use up wayyy too much of system resources and freeze or hang often if they contain too many formulas or macros. Excel 2003 works like a breeze in that regard. The difference in speed is similar to the difference between using a Notepad and MS Word.
Coming back to my question, in order to do what I need, I have to have Fyers One open and the marketwatch linked to an Excel sheet which per se drains so much of system resources. Then the formulas that I want executed through API Bridge will further go through the template Excel file provided. All this really freezes up both Excel as well as FyersOne while API Bridge is running alongside. However, the option of "setup API Bridge Signals" doesn't appear on the 2003 version. Is there any place in Excel 2003 I should be looking at to do achieve the same. A lot of my troubles would be solved if I could use the older and much faster Excel.
Second, is there any way I could disable all the extra additions and open just the market watch on Fyers One so it doesn't use much of system resources? I previously used to use Odin but every broker nowadays is discontinuing their tie-ups with Odin and are giving other web trading software. Odin's marketwatch and linking it with excel used work like a breeze and the data updation such as volume and things like that used to be fabulously fast. The USP was that practically most information such as bid-ask spread and other data used to start appearing in pre-open market itself. Fyers One on the other hand, when it freezes, data stops updating on Excel and I have to keep refreshing or scrolling back and forth on the lengthy custom market watch window I made failing which all the data shows as #Div0 or some other # error.
Fyers Web is not able to assess the current price of crude oil and keeps giving errors something like the stop is out of the permitted range and it has to be between 4021 and 4099. TRIGGER GAP IS OUT OF THE SPECIFIED GAP RANGE,MAX & MIN TRIGGER GAP RANGE IS 4011.85 4201.88
The current price of crude is well above 4200 levels.
Also, each time we refresh the web application it gives the alert boxes of the entire day. When the application hangs or doesn't refresh the updated levels of "take profit", "SL" etc on an order that is already executed, I refresh the window to check the updated details. But the 5 trillion alerts like "order placed ....xyz...pqr...success"...by the time I am done with closing out all of them, the trade gets messed up.
