5.1.Buy & Sell Window
The order window on our Investmentz Trading Platforms looks as mentioned below.
In the snapshot above you will see various fields, which are described in detail as follows:
Exchange Segment: This box will indicate which segment you are placing the orders. The various segments are NSE (NSE Equity), NFO (NSE Futures & Options), BSE (BSE Equity), BFO (BSE Futures & Options) and CDS (NSE Currency Derivative Segment).
Order Type: Order can be a Limit order (where you specify the buy/sell price), Market order (where you buy/sell at market price), SL/SL-M (stop loss/stop loss market). The difference between SL and SL-M is that when the trigger price is hit, the stop loss order is sent as a limit order with the limit price mentioned by you in the SL order, whereas in SL-M, the order is sent to the exchange as a Market order.
INST Name, Symbol, Type, Strike, Expiry: All of these are chosen by default when you click on a contract and ask to buy/sell. But if you want to change the contract/scrip, you can do it from here.
Quantity: Buy/Sell order Quantity. By default, it will show 1 for equity orders and 1 lot for F&O. To change the default quantity and any other attributes of the order.
Order Price: Mention the price if your order is limit order; if it is a market order this field cannot be entered.
Trigger Price: Trigger price will be used for Stop Loss orders. The price at which you want the stop loss to be triggered.
Disclosed Quantity: This feature can be used only on Equities (Stocks only). If you are placing a big limit order and you don’t want the entire quantity to be disclosed fearing a non-execution of order you can choose Disclosed Quantity. For example, if you buy 1000 shares of Infosys at Rs 1100 and you mention the disclosed quantity as 500, your order will show only 500 in the market depth window for everyone else, whereas actually, it is 1000. This is useful only if you are trading bigger quantities.
Prod Type (Product Type): MIS (Margin Intraday square off), CNC (Cash n Carry) . The following details are important to ensure you remember the same:
- While trading equity (Stocks on NSE/BSE): Use MIS for Intraday Trading (9:00 AM to 3:20 PM): Around 3:20 PM, all MIS positions are auto squared off. Using MIS, you will get Intraday Leverage (between 3 to 10 times) based on what stock you are trading. If it’s a good stock you get more leverage, and if it’s not a good stock you get less or no leverage. To know how much leverage you get for trading Equities for Intraday click here.Use CNC for delivery-based trading: When you buy using CNC, you will not get any leverage, but there won’t be any auto square offs either. Once bought, the stock would be sent to your Demat account and if you sell using CNC, stocks will be debited from your Demat account. Note that you won’t be able to sell with product type CNC without holding the particular stock in your demat account.You can convert MIS to CNC and vice versa, by visiting Trade book. You will need 100% cash in your account to convert to CNC.
- While trading Futures & Options (NSE/BSE): Use MIS for Intraday trading (9:00 AM to 3:30 PM). Around 3:30 PM, all MIS positions are auto squared off. The benefit of using MIS for Futures & Options is that you get extra leverage (not for buying options). You will need only 40% of Exchange stipulated margin by using this product type. So for example, if Nifty futures overnight margin is Rs. 25,000, you will require only Rs 10,000 (40% of 25,000) if you use the product type as MIS.
Validity: While trading on NSE/BSE you get only 2 options, Day orders (valid till end of the day) or IOC – Immediate or Cancel (as the name suggests, the order if not executed immediately will get cancelled). By default, day option will be selected. IOC will be a good option for people who place market orders of large quantity thereby increasing the Impact cost.
Client ID, Name, Participant, No of Days: These will be selected by default and no change to be made on this. Validity date can be used only for GTD orders on MCX.

Step 2: On Clicking the Cancel button, the order window appears and you can cancel your order by clicking on Cancel.
Step 3: Once cancellation is complete, a pop-up appears which confirms successful cancellation of the order.
Some of the main reasons for your orders to be rejected are:
- Invalid Product Type (using CNC for F&O, so on and so forth)
- Insufficient funds (please note that when you place an order – even if it is not executed, the exchange blocks funds as long as it is open), so be sure to check for any Open orders in Order Book. The rejection reason is self-explanatory, but feel free to contact us in case you cannot figure out the reason for rejection.
5.5.Stop Loss Orders – Limit/Market
What is a Stop Loss order?
When you are holding a particular stock/F&O, you fear the losses that can happen when the price starts moving against you. If you place an order to limit such a loss it is called as a Stop Loss order. So for example, if you have bought a stock at Rs 100 and you want to limit the loss at 95, you can place an order in the system to sell the stock as soon as the stock comes to 95. Such an order is called as a Stop Loss, as you are placing it to stop a loss, which could be more than what you are ready to risk.
How to place SL/SL-Market order?
The difference between a stop loss (SL) and a normal order is the trigger price. In a normal order, you get to choose either limit order or market orders. In a stop loss order you choose limit or market, but with a trigger price. What a trigger price does is that it activates your order which otherwise is inactive.
1. You will have a selling stop loss if you have bought an instrument (stock, F&O, etc).
In the above example, when you bought the stock at Rs 100, you will also place a sell stop loss order with a trigger price of 95. What this does is when the price of the stock goes to 95 or lower, a selling order is triggered. You can choose if you want this selling order as a limit order or market order. If you choose a SL order with a selling order as market price it is called SL-M, otherwise if you have to mention the limit price it is called a normal SL order.
In this example, if you choose SL-M and keep the trigger as 95, as soon as stock goes to 95 or lower a selling order is triggered at the exchange at market price. If you choose SL, as soon as stock goes to 95 or lower, a selling order is triggered at the exchange with the limit price mentioned by you. Please do understand that if the Stop loss order is sent as a limit price, there is no guaranteed execution of the stop loss as the limit order can also become a pending order .See the pic below:
