New margin rules likely to increase the cost of trading

Traders must bring in at least 50% of their futures and options margin requirement in cash starting Monday, while brokers cannot use the cash of one client for another's margin requirement to fulfil their margin requirement with bourses. The moves are expected to drive up the capital requirement for brokers and could make it more expensive for traders.
