On Monday, the Reserve Bank of India banned banks from making trades with their own money in domestic currency futures and exchange-traded options. Additionally, the Securities and Exchange Board of India made the margin requirement on the domestic dollar-rupee forward trade 100%, effectively forcing traders to pay the entire expense of any trade at the time of execution. SEBI also instituted further restrictions on all open interest dollar-rupee trades.
