1. What are the market timings?

Equity:

  • 9 am to 9.15 am – Pre-market

  • 9.15 am to 3.30 pm – Normal trading

  • 3.40 pm to 4.00 pm – Post-market

Note: All new IPOs are listed on the exchange at 10:00 am. The pre-open session is from 9:00 am to 10:00 am.

Currency:

  • 9 am to 5 pm – Normal trading

2.What are pre market and post market sessions and orders?

Pre - Open: NSE started the concept of the pre-open session to minimize the volatility of securities during the market open every day. Between 9:00 AM to 9:15 AM is when the pre-market session is conducted on NSE. 

During the pre-market session for the first 8 minutes (between 9:00 AM and 9:08 AM) orders are collected, modified or cancelled. You can place limit orders/market orders. After 9.08 AM to 9.15 AM no new orders can be placed, orders placed are matched and trades confirmed. So technically you can place orders only for the first 8 minutes and only on equity segment.

Post - Open: Similar to pre-market orders, post-market orders are allowed only for equity trading. The post-market session or closing session is open from 3:40 PM to 4:00 PM. 

During this session, people can place buy/sell orders in equity (delivery segment using the CNC product code) at the market price but do note that even if you place a market order it will be placed on the exchange at the closing price. 

So for example, if the closing price of SBIN at 3:30 PM is Rs. 300, between 3:40 PM and 4:00 PM, you can place market orders to buy/sell SBIN at market price (will be taken at Rs. 300). The post-market session is not very active and you can look at the movement of stocks by opening the Marketwatch window from 3:40 PM to 4:00 PM.

3. I’ve bought shares but its not showing up in my holdings, why?

The following are the reasons why you may not be seeing the shares you’ve purchased:

A. The shares that you have bought have been short delivered. 

The seller of the shares has defaulted on the settlement of shares. Short delivery is an event where the seller of the shares, defaults on the delivery of the shares by T+2 Days. In such cases, the exchange holds an auction for the same quantity of shares & delivers it to the buyer.

Short delivery can happen in stocks with less liquidity, or if a short MIS hasn’t been squared off in some circumstances.

In this case, you will be notified of the same via SMS and email.

B. If you have a 'trade to trade' stock in your holding and you sell it, but buy it back it on the same day, the stocks will not be visible in your holdings till after the settlement (T+2 days).

4. What does normal settlement mean?

The normal settlement cycle for a transaction on the exchange is T+2 days, i.e if you buy a share it will take 2 days for it to be credited to your DEMAT account. (Also implies that if you sell shares you will be able to withdraw that amount after T+2 days)

Ex- if you buy a share on Monday, it’ll be credited to your account on Wednesday evening. (If you sell shares on Monday it'll be withdrawable on Wednesday)

The settlement cycle for Derivatives (F&O, MCX) is T+1 day.

Note: On settlement holidays since the Depositories and clearing members are closed, the settlement duration get extended & stocks bought a day before the settlement holidays will not show up on the trading platform.

5. I’m not able to buy a stock on EASYTRADEZ even though its trading on the exchange?

If you’re facing the above issue, you have to check which series/group the stock is trading in by checking on NSE or BSE website.

This issue occurs when a particular scrip has been moved from one series to another and an order is placed in the series the stock was moved from and you’d generally get the error.

For Ex -  if Apex Frozen Foods was moved from BE series to EQ - and is trading as a stock in the EQ series.This can be verified by checking on the NSE website under the ‘series’ header.

If you place an order in APEX-BE from the trading terminal, the order will get rejected. This can be resolved by placing the order in the current series under which the stock is trading, which in this example would be APEX-EQ which is shown as just APEX in the market watch.

6. What do the different groups on NSE and BSE mean?

NSE & BSE categorize stocks based on what they represent, where each series/group represents a different category of stocks, distinguishing them from each other and also the people who can trade them.

7. Why do Futures & Option scrips enter ban period, what does it mean?

For any security, if its derivative contracts cross 95% of Market wide position limits (MWPL) then that security will be under the ban for F&O. 

It means the combined open interest [the number of contracts outstanding in futures and options trading on an official exchange at any one time.] of all option and future contracts for all the months taken together for that particular underlying crosses 95% of MWPL.

A user isn't allowed to open any new positions in securities under ban period but can exit already opened positions.

8. What does circuit limits i.e price bands mean?

These are safeguards set to prevent large moves in the stock in a very short time and when the price changes above or below the limit, trading is halted on the stock. The price band is the range within which the scrip can be traded without being halted.

Orders placed out of the price band will be rejected, and if the price drops to the upper/lower price band trading will temporarily be halted. F&O stocks have dynamic price bands in order to prevent erroneous order placement.

9. How do I rollover a F&O position in ban period?

To rollover contracts in ban period, you will have to call up the dealer desk.

10. What are Open interest limits?

In addition to adhering to the exchange mandated initial margin requirements, brokers are also subject to position limits. Open Interest (OI) is a number that tells you how many futures (or Options) contracts are currently outstanding (open) in the market.

There is a client-wise open interest limit of 5% of total number of all derivative contracts for the same underlying and a 15% open interest limitation for the trading members (brokers)

11. What does De-listing of a stock mean?

The term "delisting" of securities means removal of securities of a listed company from a stock exchange. As a consequence of delisting, the securities of that company would no longer be traded at that stock exchange. These stocks won't be visible on the EASYTRADEZ

A company delists for 2 reasons - forced or voluntarily.

Forced delist - This is when the exchanges decide to delist the company, usually for non-compliance. If you are holding shares of such companies, then you will have to write it off as bad investment.

Voluntarily delist - This is when the company itself decides to delist the shares from the exchange. This could be an outcome of a corporate restructuring exercise. Under such a situation, the company has to offer a premium over and above the current market price of the shares. Usually, the premium shoots up to 30-40% or more.

Either way, when delists, the shares are relinquished and is no longer traded in the markets.

12. Why is my order not getting executed even though its been placed successfully?

In certain situations, where there is extremely bad news regarding the company, the stock prices drop rapidly. Due to this, the stock hits lower circuit limits continuously on a daily basis and no new people come in to buy these shares. This generally happens in penny stocks which have no liquidity.

Similarly, when there is a lot of buying pressure & demand for a certain stock, there may be a lot of bids but no one willing to sell these shares.

The market depth will look as depicted in the below images -

13. What is the impact of Corporate actions on futures and options?

Corporate actions like Bonus, Rights, Extra-ordinary dividends, Merger/Demerger, Amalgamation, Splits and Consolidations will result in adjustments in the futures & options contracts of the underlying stock which is undergoing the corporate action.

The basis for any adjustment for corporate actions shall be such that the value of the position of the market participants, on the cum and ex-dates for the corporate action, shall continue to remain the same as far as possible.

Adjustments will result in a change of base price, option strike values & the market lot depending on the adjustment factor.  In a lot of cases, adjustments may result in the change in date of expiry of the contract as well i.e contract will be force closed before the expiry date and the adjusted contracts will trade instead. 

The adjustments would be carried out on any or all of the above, based on the nature of the corporate action. The adjustments for corporate actions would be carried out on all open positions.

As per provisions of Section 5 of the Income Tax Act,1961, income received in India is chargeable to tax. 

It is recommended that you consult a tax expert who will help you based on the nature and quantum of your income earned in India, will calculate your tax liability.

20. Why did my order get executed at different price points?

When you place a market order, the order will get executed at the best bid/offer available at the exchange. If the quantity of the existing bids/offers isn't enough to match your order quantity, in that case, the remaining unexecuted quantity will be matched against the next best bid/offer.

Let's us understand this using an example:

Below is the market depth of GMRINFRA, let's assume you place a market order to buy 100 shares, 20 shares will get purchased at 15, 50 shares will get purchased at 15.50 and the remaining 30 shares will be purchased at 15.75

The same concept applies to limit orders in a different way. In the above example if you had placed a limit order to buy  the 100 shares at 15, then 20 shares would be bought immediately but the remaining shares 80 quantity will stay as a pending order in your order book, and subsequently, if any offer at your price comes in, the order will be executed.

Note: If any of the bids/offers have the disclosed quantity only, in that case, the quantity executed will be different from that seen in the market depth. 

21. Why do I get an SMS and email from NSE, BSE when I trade?

In a move to check unauthorized stock market trades through investor accounts, NSE and BSE send SMS/Email alerts to retail investors for their transactions on days they have traded.

22. Can I do an arbitrage trade between the two exchanges?

This can be explained with an example: 

Assume Reliance stock is trading on NSE at 1000 and on BSE at 1004, you can do an arbitrage trade for intraday, so you can buy on NSE at 1000 and short on BSE at 1004, when the price difference comes lower than 4 (1004-1000) sell on NSE and buy back the shares on BSE. When you cover, if the difference between NSE and BSE prices is lesser than 4 you make a profit, if not, losses. 

This is an arbitrage trade because it doesn’t matter to you if reliance goes up or down, all you are bothered is about the price difference between Reliance on NSE and BSE.

You can also do such a trade if you already have stocks in your DEMAT. So for example, if you held Reliance in your DEMAT, you could sell it at 1004 on BSE and immediately buy it on NSE for 1000, this way to reduce the cost of your holding.

What you cannot do is - delivery based arbitrage, i.e buying on NSE and Selling on BSE without holding the stock in your DEMAT account.  (CNC orders)

Assume you buy reliance stock on NSE at Rs 1000, the delivery of this stock will come to you only on Wednesday evening (T+2 day), whereas the stock you sold on BSE at 1004, you will have to give delivery of that to the exchange latest by Wednesday morning (T+2). 

But until evening you will not have reliance shares, so on Wednesday morning you will end up with a short delivery and will be taken to auction which can have huge implications in terms of penalty, where you can lose much more than the Rs 4 arbitrage profit you were trying to put the trade for.

24. What are Bid Price and Ask Price?

When you sell a stock, the price received for that, is the bid price. When you plan to purchase a stock, the price you get for it is the ask price

SPAN Margin is the minimum requisite margins blocked for futures and option writing positions as per the exchange’s mandate and ‘Exposure Margin’ is the margin blocked over and above the SPAN to cushion for any MTM losses.

Do note both SPAN and Exposure margin are specified by the exchange. So at the time of initiating a futures trade, the client has to adhere to the initial margin requirement. The entire initial margin (SPAN + Exposure + ADHOC margin) is blocked by the exchange.

Note: From 2nd July 2018 onwards, SEBI has made it mandatory for both SPAN and exposure margin to be blocked in order to take an over night position. If it isn't, margin penalty will be applicable.

 

9. What is disclosed quantity feature and how to use it?

Disclosed quantity allows you to disclose only a part of the actual quantity you want to buy/sell. Once the disclosed quantity is specified by the client, the order is sent to the exchange and only the disclosed quantity will be shown on the market screen.

The disclosed quantity, if entered should not be greater than order quantity and should also not be less than 10% of the order quantity.

Eg: If the customer wants to buy/sell 25000 shares, with a disclosed quantity condition of 5000 shares, only 5000 shares will be displayed to the market at a time. After this is traded, another 5000 shares will be automatically released until the order is fully executed.

Disclosed quantity can’t be used when we trade in futures & options.

Different exchanges have different disclosed quantities:

  • NSE/BSE (Equity) = Disclosed quantity cannot be less than 10% of your order.

  • NSE/BSE(F&O) = There is no disclosed quantity option. You can place multiple orders if you want to buy/sell huge quantity without shaking up the market.
