How does pledging stocks help?

You may pledge stocks to avail short term and long term funding. Short term funding includes funding of equity cash stocks for a maximum of 7 days and funding of derivative positions as well (except MtoM losses which needs to be settled on a daily basis). The long term funding is called as MTF (Margin Trade Funding). 

As seen in the video, there are two options available to pledge stocks. One is the Margin Pledge funding and the other is the MTF Collateral pledge request. To avail short term funding or derivative funding, use the margin pledge option and to avail funding under MTF use MTF Collateral pledge option.  To know more about this read our detailed blog here
