    @rakeshr how is the margin required calculated ? Is it updated on realtime basis, communicating with API is delaying the order execution by a bit, is there anyway I can calculate it in the backend ?

    how is the margin required calculated ?
    It's calculated in real-time, considering your open positions and open orders.
    It's a complex calculation. You can keep using order margin APIs. A more detailed explanation is given in this thread.

    @rakeshr it seems that auction orders are not yet properly implemented in Publisher (both offsite orders and JS plugin). The required param `auction_number ` is not being passed thru on both these products and hence auction orders are currently broken in Kite Publisher (both offsite orders and JS plugin)

    @rakeshr : Is there any way to get the live offers for each auction through API. I need to get the data thats visible on the kite webapp after clicking the sell button on an individual auction.

    @rakeshr Can we get a feature that shows stock name + how many quantity exchange wants to buy in Auction, even if the stock is not in my holding right now?

    Right now in order to do this, this is what I do:

    1.) Buy 1 quantity of stocks that I sold from my holding
    2.) Go to bid page and check this manually
    3.) Sell 1 quantity of stock of all shares i purchased.

    I buy/sell a lot of stocks in my holding. So I place like 50 orders (buy+sell) to do this daily. Seems really inefficient.
