Fyers offers intraday margin (or exposure) up to 16x. The actual limit offered depends on the stock or instrument you are trading. This facility allows Fyers customers to trade more than the funds available in their account. Fyers offers margin facility only on intraday trades.

Note: Fyers doesn't offer margin funding. The margins are only available in intraday positions closed the same trading day.

In a normal trade, you have to pay 100% of the value in cash to buy shares. With Margin Trading, on select stocks, you can pay a small percentage of the trade value and the rest will be paid by Fyers. This allows you to trade in larger value than what you could have done without funding.
