Hello Nitin,

I have been using Zerodha for past couple of years and have used other platforms for more than 8 years. I have been noticing for sometime that whenever I put market orders (100 out of 100 times), it always execute at couple of points less (for buy order) and more (for sell orders). So for example if the market rate as flashing on the screen is lets say Rs 200 my sell order would execute at around 198.X or 197.X but certainly never closer to 200 or at 200 but if I put the limit order it will execute at that price.

Quite surprised how come you always gets executed on the lower side of market even when liquidity spread is not high and when even after execution the market price as shown on screen is higher than your execution price. Am I missing something ?
