1. Currency trades on both NSE and MCX-SX
2. To trade currency you need to open a trading account with us, if you have opened one for trading equity that would do provided you have opted for currency trading. If you haven’t, you need to send an segment addition form.
3. While trading currency, it has to be traded against another currency, this is called a pair. For example if you want to trade USD, then if you want to bullish or bearish about it, you need to know against what currency you will feel so. USDINR is a currency pair.
4. In India you can trade between 9am to 5pm.
5. Lot size varies based on what you wish to trade, USDINR is 1000 dollars. Margin required for trading this overnight will be around 5 to 8% of contract size based on volatility.
