Trading Q&A

March 31, 2014


Today, we announce the launch of Trading Q&, a new initiative in our quest to empower retail traders & investors with knowledge.

In 2012, we started Z-Connect as a way to converse and connect with you and to provide you with up-to-date information on all aspects of trading with us. Soon, Z-Connect grew into something bigger, a very active educational portal covering a wide variety of topics on trading and markets. We were immensely happy that the trading community, you, embraced Z-Connect and sparked countless insightful discussions. However, we also realised that it is not an easy endeavour to produce, classify, and disseminate quality information, and definitely not by one or two people in the form of a blog. We realised that it was the need of the hour to have a better platform, much better than anything that is currently available to the Indian trading and investment community, given the pitiful state of the popular trading forums out there that severely lack quality, spread misinformation, and are painful to use.

Enter Trading Q&A—a community maintained, self-curated, question and answer site for all things related to trading and stock markets. It is absolutely free to use, open, and community powered. Unlike a forum, where discussions often turn long winded and useful information gets lost in the countless pages spawned by threads, Trading Q&A enables you to ask a question and get direct, to the point answers from the community. Members of the community vote up or down questions and answers posted based on the quality and merit of the content, and as a result, good questions and good answers naturally rise to the top. An open and democratic way of learning and sharing knowledge.


Trading Q&A

How does it work?

  • Ask a question pertaining to trading and markets
  • Wait for the community to answer
    (Remember, you are the community, so when someone asks a question that you are knowledgeable about, it’s your turn to answer)
  • Look out for answers that have been upvoted the most, and select the best answer based on merit

To get a gist of how it works, see this example question: To trade in MCX why do we only need SPAN margin, where as for Equity F&O we need SPAN & EXPOSURE margin?


Beside quality content, the best part about Trading Q&A is the points system. When you post a good question or a good answer, the community will show their appreciation by up-voting your submissions. Each up-vote earns you points. These points depict your “reputation” in the community. The higher the number of points you have, the better your contribution to the community. The points can also earn you privileges in the community, such as gaining content moderation abilities, or becoming an “Expert”. You can read more about points here.

Zerodha’s role

As administrators of the platform, we consider it our responsibility is to keep it entirely neutral, clean, and free of spam. We will strive to make the platform a high quality repository of curated knowledge that is up-to-date, relevant, and continually growing, backed by a strong and dedicated community. One of the things we’ve done to ensure openness and to really give ownership to the community, is to license all user generated content in the public domain (cc by-sa 3.0 with attribution required), similar to what Wikipedia does.

In addition, though the community will be self curated, we as Zerodha will keep finding market experts to join and participate, and moderators to keep everything neat and tidy.

Stock tips – a big No

As you already know, we’ve never promoted, nor will we give stock tips and recommendations. Trading Q&A follows the same principle. The community will neither encourage, nor tolerate solicitation and publishing of stock tips and recommendations. For it to grow as quality repository of information, it is important to keep the questions and answers generated by the community as objective as possible.


We are very excited to see how the Trading Q&A community grows.  Together, we can make it the best community and the highest quality store of trading and market knowledge in India.

As always, looking for your continued support.

Team Zerodha

India's largest broker trusted by 1.3+ crore investors.

    Sub :- Need a Clarity On TAX AUDIT.

    Share Trading Is My Only Business.

    I Do Only and Only Cash Buy / Sell.

    And Sometimes INTRADAY.

    ( No Futures N Options )

    My Turnover I Keep Below 10 Crore.

    Till Now I have Booked Profit Only at Minimum 6 %.

    Now I Intend To Book Profit at Less than 6%.

    May be 3 To 4%.

    Whatever Yearly Profit I will Make, I check Through ZERODHA Tax P/L Statement and will file my returns accordingly.

    So Then…


    Is the TAX AUDIT Required in My Case… Just Because My Profit is BOOKED Below 6 %…???

    ( My Income is Above Taxable Limits )

    Waiting For a Straightaway Fixed 6 % Profit in Shares Is Becoming bothersome,and Too long Waiting and Uncertainty.

    Hence I wish to Book Profit at Lesser Percentage.

    At the same time…want to avoid the Hassles of a TAX AUDIT.

    Kindly Clarify…???

    Do I Need To Go For an Audit… Just Because My Profit percentage is Less then 6%.

  2. Bharath says:

    In option we can trade multiple times in the same strike. It will affect our p&l or that strike will average each time after my 1st trade is over(In intraday)
    Ex: 1st trade-If I buy 21000ce at 30rs ,then sell it 37rs
    2nd trade-
    After again few hours later same strike I buy at 5 rs it was expiry day so much decay then I sell it for 8rs
    Is there any connection with 1st and 2nd or totally it will understand different Trade??
    Anyone who know clearly please explain briefly and simplicity so 18 year boy understanding easily??

  3. Dhananjoy says:

    Suppose I have Rs. 30000 in my Zerodha account for trading. For swing trade, shares of how much amount I can purchase. Is it more than Rs. 30000?

    • Shubham says:

      Hi Dhananjay, there is no leverage provided for overnight positions, so you will be able to buy shares worth 30,000 only.

  4. Mahesh says:

    If i place an intra day buy limit order, it gets executed at 1 pm, at 1.30 pm i convert it to CNC ie i take delivery. Will i be charged Rs 20 for intra day transaction in addition to stt etc payable for delivery. Same question if i sell on intraday basis but later, before 3 pm i convert it to CNC as i already have shares in my demat account.

  5. Mahesh says:

    Hi if i buy shares on CNC ie delivery basis and later on the same day sell these on CNC basis, will i be charged short delivery auction penalty because I have sold shares before reaching demat account? Suppose the person from whom i have bought fails to deliver shares in time. Second question will zerodha charge Rs 20 in this case for intra day transaction? Assuming i don’t have those shares in my demat account. I am first buying and then selling. When I am selling after 3.15 pm it has to be CNC.

  6. Sanyukta says:

    I have read on Varsity that in Short Condor strategy margin decreases by Buying one deep OTM Call option and selling one OTM Call option , Similarly in Put Option also.
    But when I tried to execute it was failed because of margin. I had selected Intraday.
    Please explain why more than 1 lakh margin money required although in Varsity it was written 40000.

    • Shubham says:

      Hi Sanyukta, the margin requirements can change based on changes in price and volatility. To place orders in the basket you need to have sufficient ‘required margin’. The final margin is the eventual margin that will be blocked after all the orders are executed. Explained here.

  7. Gokul says:

    hi for intraday option selling trade can i use 100% non-cash component pledge margin

    • Shruthi says:

      Hi Gokul, yes, you can. Only for overnight F&O positions, 50% of the margin needs to compulsorily come in cash and the remaining 50% in terms of collateral margin. More here.

  8. Bharat Thtte says:

    I need a list of ETFs traded on zerodha kite, with their full form/name and code used in the watchlist. Is this available somewhere?

  9. Ajay Patil says:

    Hi Nithin /Team,
    From July 1st ,As usual I have transferred amount through coin using upi..but h I see my mutual funds orders not yet placed or processed.

    and i See the link:

    But however if i follow same process then I to have transfer amount for each Mutual Fund ,which is becoming very ridiculous and redundant so request you to please have work around on this like earlier and do needful.

    I can able to pay individually but which is not good at all (To many redundant work). Lets say for example .
    if i have 20 MF of SIP each of Rs 1000 then i have to do 20 transactions. Actually i would like to transfer Rs, 20,000 so automatically based on SIP amount will get deduct in this case Rs 1000 for each Mutual fund. Please find the attached screenshot for your reference (ticket number #20220703119380. and its really becoming difficulty for users and which is not user friendly

    • Shruthi R says:

      Hey Ajay, for now, you’ll have to make the payment individually for each SIP. However, we’ll soon have a single payment for all orders and mandates as well. Will keep you posted.

      • Ajay Patil says:

        thank you . Single payment for all order is user friendly as Mandates works like Emi options… if i dont have enough amount in bank then some penalty will get deducts .. anyway waiting for solution/fix for current issue. thanks again.

        • Ajay Patil says:

          Also ,if i want to run my SIP’s on 10th of every month and 20th of every month… which cannot able done in mandate option. so single payment for all order would be benefit the customer . please help us fast track and thanks for understanding.

  10. Maddy says:

    I want to trade “options”.

    Instead of holding cash, I want to pledge bonds & bees. As there is a requirement for keeping 50% cash for the overnight holding & “Liquid bees” are considered as quasi cash. My doubt is that…

    If my Capital = ₹3,50,000/-.

    Can I keep the pledging portfolio as

    Government Bonds = ₹ 1,50,000
    Liquid Bees = ₹ 1,00,000
    Cash = ₹ 50,000

    Do I get margin around ₹ 3,00,000 for Options trading ? Pls Help. I am new in Zerodha.

  11. Paresh says:

    Hi nitin
    I want to open trading account of my LLP firm and I have 5-6 employees it is possible to open 1 trading account with 5-6 client account for my employes from which they can trade for my firm

  12. SAKINA says:

    Hi I got a short margin penalty. I generally do option trading. But I can remember that end of the day I cleared all my positions. So my question is whether margin penalty can be levied even if during the day I have short margin.

  13. Niel says:

    What will be my account balance if I sell all my stock holdings,
    square off all my open positions including futures and options ?

    Is it same as “Account Value” displayed in console ?

  14. Jitesh says:

    Does kite have functionality of saving plotted charting studies (Support, Resistance, Trendlines, Chart Patterns, Wave Structure) for multiple (50-100) charts?

  15. Ayush says:

    If I place a after market order at 7:00 AM today say…it gets sent to the exchange at 9:00 AM…9:00 AM is start of pre market …so will it be treated as Pre market order? Will treatment be same or different?

    • Shubham says:

      Hey Ayush, market and limit AMO orders in equity segment (NSE and BSE) are sent to the exchange at 9 AM. If your order is matched, it’ll execute in pre-open session itself. If it isn’t, it’ll be carried forward to normal market hours. You can learn more on pre-market session here.

  31. Rishang says:

    axha ab smjh aaya zerodha ab contract note kyu nhi send krta h roj ki roj bcz kyu ki isse customer ko pta hi nhi chalega ki kitni brokerage debit hui h aur paisa bhi chahe future ya option ya phir cash equity aur brokerage firm ke comparison me 1 din baad hi dete h taki customer bhool jae acha tarika h ye zerodha ka chori krne ka customer jaan bhi nhi paega aur kaam bhi ho jayega , ab to contract note ki liye bhi bahut mehnt krni pdti

  32. Hanumant says:

    In my account latest trading call or put option not showing ….why this happen

  33. SHAMSHER says:

    I have found zerodha as the best broker in the market. BUT, there is only one limitation i.e. OI limit on strike price and being an option trader, this is the biggest limitation for me. I want to know whether Zerodha is going to remove the OI limits on strike prices so that we can buy deep OTM options in times to come.

    • Matti says:

      Hey, this limit exists only for naked buy positions due to an exchange limit on the total OI a broker can hold. Until there is a change in regulation, there is little we can do.

  34. jerrin says:


    I have just registered an account with Zerodha.
    But I just noticed a mistake in the registered account. How can I update my account before the account gets created or verified.

    The new sebi rule regarding selling…where OTP will have to be mentioned…is it applicable for intraday selling also..that is same day selling of stocks


    I bought 210 units of liquidbees and created pledge for margin. Afterwards I purchased 190 units of Liquidbees. When I tried to pledge the 190 units,, the thread opened has a column showing UNPLEDGE but PLEDGE FOR MARGIN option is not avialable. Is it I have to unpledge 210 units first and then pledge for margin all 400 units at one time ? . Iam unable to carry F&O trade because of this and not getting answer though I raised the issue in SUPPORT app. Iam not able to contact Zerodha over phone since IVRS of no use.
    Can somebody help me out.

  38. Pratheep says:

  39. harsh says:


    zerodha streak team its great to know that kite and angle broking has been added with API for algo kindly move forward for more brokers as zerodha has higher intraday margin as compared to other brokers .


  40. Dinesh says:

    Why is RSI in kite (using TV view) and TradingView different. Isn’t kite using TV indicators in TV view.

    If these could be different, which RSI is Zerodha using. TV uses Exponential RSI.

    • Dinesh says:

      Could this be due to the fact that though both are exponential but the start dates are different. Leading to differences in RSI.

  41. PRABHAT says:

    Nifty Option Chain query :
    While looking to NSE Option Chain for 7th Jan21 Settlement – I found 15000 Strike period with sufficient OI even on 6th Jan21 and this quoted whole the day between Rs.1.05 – 80p even when the Nifty was about 100 points down. My query is when we all are over sure that Nifty will not touch 15000 by 7th Jan.21, the settlement day, then how and why OI and trading is going on and who are the operators i.e. writers and buyers, and what interest / profit they do have here. The 15000 Strike Price Option Chain as on 6th Jan21 (settlement 7th Jan21) is furnished below for view and review / comments : –
    Calls Side Figures
    OI Change in OI Volume bid quantity ask quantity
    2,078,175 311,025 42,009 4800 3000

    Puts Side Figures
    OI Change in OI Volume bid quantity ask quantity
    7,875 — 9 75 750

  42. Vasudev says:

    Is there any changes from December 1st in equity trading?

    I heard that, If I sell a CNC share from my Dp, can’t re-purchase the same shares same day. However I can buy another share as CNC or use the sale amount to do intraday in any other scrip.

    Please clarify

    Hi, Can you make the preset quantity of 1 share ‘selected’ as default when opening order placing window in kite. After the new update, we have to delete the 1 and type new quantity whereas previously we just had to type the quantity and the ‘1’ would have been replaced. Sometimes I am placing 150 instead of 50 due to this.

  74. Jatin says:

    I have selected the following ETF to buy (hold / delivery position) from zerodha platform. The investment amount is 1,00,000/- (one lakh in one go). Take below as an example. Amounts taken to nearest round value for easy understanding.

    niftybees @ rs. 100 @ 200 qty = 20,000/-
    setfnif50 @ rs. 100 @ 200 qty = 20,000/-
    setfnn50 @ rs. 250 @ 200 qty = 50,000/-
    icicinifty @ rs. 100 @ 100 qty = 10,000/-

    The biggest query is that VOLUME & VOLATILITY. I heard that apart from NIFTYBEES , other ETF are not- recommended by many analyst, youtube experts , as instantly 100 or 200 quantity buying/ selling couldn’t be possible in one go due to less interest / low demand / less traders on those. So it would not be possible to trade as short term and buy sell 100-200 quantities in one go. How far it is true / correct ?

    (Note – I don’t want to treat ETFs as SIP or mutual fund as I have some different outlook on it , and I already have diversified SIP portfolios. This ETF investment I only want to take tension free gain. Once nifty become up , then take the profit by selling and buy on low again and go on , rather investing in stocks and watch , monitor )

    So please advise , whether the above 4 ETF are ok to invest , or only at NIFTYBEES considering my above concept.

    Has zerodha increased brokerage charges for intraday…Please explain..

    • Matti says:

      The maximum brokerage per order is still Rs. 20, however, the minimum has been changed from 0.01% to 0.03%. Explained here.

  78. Chandra Fernandes says:

    Please explain how brokerage charges are deducted. Is it calculated on a daily basis or weekly basis. Today I find approximately Rs 100 deducted and i took one trade today.

    How can we auto trade in Nifty Futures, based on Nifty 50 Index?
    Normally, my strategy consists of zones at different price levels.
    So, is there any way so that I would automatically enter the trade in nifty futures by entering the trigger price of Nifty index?
    Similarly exit the trade when nifty index reaches particular price?
    To be simple, I want to know whether there is any chance to enter & exit the Nifty Futures by using the Nifty 50

  80. Chandra Fernandes says:

    Today there is a difference of Rs. 0.70 between the chart prices and the prices on the watch list…Please explain why so? Anyways there is always a difference of Rs. 0.30 minimum between these two prices.

  81. Aveek Paul says:

    in zerodha margin calculator site, in USDINR MAY 2020 its given lot size -1000, nrml margin – 2271 , mis margin-1135
    In Margin calculator option there, If I enter Rs1000 as cash available, its showing number of lots that can be bought is zero.
    But, if I enter Rs 4000 as cash available its showing number of lots that can be bought is 1.
    Does that mean I need a minimum of Rs4000 cash available to buy 1135 shares in MIS.?
    Cant I enter this USDINR MAY 2020 trade with cash lesser than Rs4000 through MIS?

    • Matti says:

      The SPAN calculator only shows you NRML margin. A percentage of this is required for MIS trades. Check out that percentage here.

  82. Chandra Fernandes says:

    Please explain how brokerage charges are calculated for intraday and cnc trades. I have gone through the brokerage charges calculator but I find that charges are being deducted even on days when I have not taken any trade.

    It happened earlier too when I wanted some put option but wasn’t able to find it in the search section.

  86. Vikas Mishra says:

    In the Trading View chart, when I pop out the chart that gets open in a new window that is expected behavior but whatever indicators I have set up in a normal window that gets lost in the popout window.

    If you could fix this that would be very helpful.

  87. Vikash says:


    I plotted 50 days EMA on daily chart and when compress (more data points) or expand the chart (less data points), why does EMA line changes in value.

    Example for Apollo Types when I have my chart from Sept 2019 to Apr 2020, the EMA 50 is above any price point but when my chart is from Jan-2019 till current date then the EMA is below the price point for the same period Sep-2019 to Apr-2020.

    Since this is Average so it should not change and remain fixed at all times . Is this a bug?

    • Matti says:

      This is because the EMS is only calculated with the candles visible on the chart, this isn’t a bug, this is how any charting platform works.

    Dear SIR/Mam

    Just wanted to know, how is it that my Yes Bank shares -1380 inquantity that I had purchased on Tuesday March 24 2020 for Rs 49983 with Rs 36.22 as average cost on Wednesday March 25 showing Rs 40368 as total investment done by me with average price reducing to 29.25……….Please revert and do the needful…………thanks…….

      Hey Faiz,

      The average price we show is always the average of your total holdings. Your YESBANK holding average is calculated including the locked-in shares in your account.

  97. Chaithanya says:

    Hi All,
    I have seen today (9-Mar-20) that in MCX there is no chance of buying MIS/CO/BO, my simple query is does a pond,lake,sea,ocean etc etc meant only for big fish ? Do small fish like us don’t have any scope of surviving in such critical cases where we can able to earn based on our luck,study,analysis etc etc…each time when there is a huge volatality this stops working and won’t allow us to place the orders… seriously you guys are providing good stuff.but let small fish like us also survive by not blocking such orders during volatality time. Hope you can understand and support us

    • Chaithanya says:

      Even option also didn’t allowed to place

    • Matti says:

      Hey Chaithanya, you could still trade on MCX with full margins. On volatile days, the risk associated with offering margins is significantly higher than normal for us, hence the block. For instance, if we allowed a customer to take an MIS position in Crude Oil on Monday, the client may end up losing a lot more money than what is available in the account and we would have to still pay that to the exchange from our pockets.

    Why there is a restriction of 20,000 share per order in Zerodha? Is there a way in Kite to place single order for than 20k shares especially for low price shares?

    • Matti says:

      Hey Tulsi, this restriction is part of our risk-management policy. You will have to place multiple separate orders. We are working on making basket orders available on Kite where you can place multiple orders of 20k stocks in a single basket.

      • Tulsi says:

    How to know if my account is in debit balance in zerodha. I want to know this so as to avoid interest 0.05% per day fees.

    • Nakul says:

      1. The funds page in Kite has an Available Cash field which shows the balance in your account excluding the collateral component. In case this is in debit balance, you will be charged interest on the debit balance.
      2. You can also refer to the daily margin statement you receive on every traded day. If the total funds value is less than 50% of the total margin requirement, you will be charged interest on the shortfall.

    In the given example of HDFC Market Depth, total buyers 269,171 and total sellers 948103.
    However, the 20 depth shows around 6000 buyers and 10,000 sellers. There is a huge difference compared to the total. It means the 20 depth shows only 2% of volume.
    Where are the other bids and what could be the motivation for keeping the prices for those bids below/beyond the current prices?
    Can there be any fraudulent interests for placing such bids at far prices? If yes, what could they be?

    • Matti says:

      Why someone has a bid or ask at a given price is very subjective. The 20 depth, however, gives you an idea of what most likely to be traded. Explained in more detail here.

    Hi all,
    Any one can help me in clearing ESOP doubt regarding taxation,
    regarding ESOP of Federal Bank,
    I m working in federal bank, m eligible for 4500 equity shares of different rates like 28/-,42,52,62/- etc for last different years,
    I m in tax bracket of 5-10 lakhs, want to know the tax aspects of this transaction if I execute sell all shares next month, some body from bank says bank deducts TDS of 30.9% as perquisites tax on profits earned from this transaction and if I sell immediately with in an year short term capital gains of 15%**,and if m holding it more than one year there is no tax if the gain is below 1 lakhs..
    I m not purchased it still.. plan to purchase(exercise the option) in next montg
    when the option exercised,(exercised price- allotted price), and this difference amount is treated as salary and add to my total income and claim the refund from income tax if I m eligible in lowest slab..,
    Is it like that? Or plz rectify if m wrong..

    • The difference between the strike price to market price on the day it got allotted is considered as income/salary. You have to pay as per tax slabs. From that price to when you sell, it will be considered as a capital gain.

    What a wonderful platform created by Zerodha.
    Can’t you solve single most important (and must be the easiest to solve) problem. i.e “View Saving”
    (It takes all the efforts in the world to save simply a chart setting!)
    Names can not be renamed, & worst is, sometimes all views gets deleted automatically (happened with me, feels very bad).
    What’s wrong with all your technical team that didn’t solve this problem yet.

    -Sorry but “saving settings” is the first and foremost thing you must think to solve now,
    I just feel like leaving Zerodha for such a small reason. (but it’s not small it’s a huge problem, facing since beginning).

    Please answer me what’s the problem and exactly when will it get solved ?

    2. So Please suggest me which PAID DATA FEED (For Amibroker) i should subscribe to over come this problem.
    Note: I have VWAP indicator with amibroker

    3. Do we need Level-3 or tick by Tick data to calculate VWAP ? OR Level-1/Level-2 data is sufficient? from Data provider

    Thanks in advance

      You’ll see “Avg. Price” in the market depth. That is essentially the VWAP that is streamed by the exchange. You can use this value. It’s real-time and independent of charts.

      Yes, but 5 Lakhs shares will still be a significant quantity and your order will get executed beyond the 5 step market depth increasing your impact cost.
      Its recommended you place a limit order with the maximum price at which you want to buy(can be higher than the LTP).

      • Rahul chaudhary says:

        Faisal sir, So you are saying that only one lakh shares will be placed at a time through market order🤔

        • Faisal says:

          I did not say that. What I’m trying to say is there might not necessarily be enough liquidity in the 5 market depth that you see on Kite. It is best you look at the market depth and figure at what price your full 5 lakh quantity will get filled at. Read the bid and ask price section of this chapter in Varsity to understand this better.

  163. Nishant says:


    I am currently running an options strategy. Are there any API’S that will help in automating it where I can slice my orders, automatically choose the best bid and ask?Because there is a lot of slippage when I am hitting my orders on NEST.

    • Faisal says:

      Nishant, we do expose APIs to link your trading account. However, you will not be able to fully automate your trades due to restrictions from the exchange(You need to get your algorithm approved from the exchange if you want to automate).
      Do check out the Kite Connect Documentation and Developer Forum if you have any further queries

  166. Ramprasad says:

    Is there a way i can carry forward Orders in zerodha for next days.

    Basically, i just want to put a order , say good for 30days/60days for equity. I do not want to check the stock price everyday, and have definite limits. whenever it crosses the limit i want to bull/sell.

    • Matti says:

      Hey Ramprasad, long-standing orders are on our list of things to do. For now, however, you can set alerts on Sentinel for your price condition and place a basket order for all stocks. Explained here.

    dear sir/madam,
    I want to trading in cross currency and on feb 2018 sebi given permission to trade in cross currency also. But zerodha almost 10 months over not yet updated cross currency trading in their plateform. So I want to know how much time spent to update cross currency in zerodha.

  168. Anil Mishra says:

    Dear, Nitin Kamath
    Your zerodha brokerage firm is largest brokerage firm in India it is good now but I want to give a suggestion you do something for the new agers students I think many students who came here and open a account and trade but these students are newly in this market and I saw many student who wants earning from this market for our tuitions fee clg fee etc. They have much burden on his soldiers like 18+ age students .
    And after this age his pocket income is closes by his parents .My moto is only that please give some relaxation in the brokerage in commodity and equity like you give 70- 100 trades free in every month bcz these students are less risky game changers and he want to only achieve 0.10-0.15 paise trgt in commodity but brokerage is so high and he wait for 0.40 trgt and after he doesn’t achieve trgt and is getting a loss .
    In end of only in please give some trades free of cost give only students who filled student profile in account opening time
    Your one step in good side taking low brokerage for low brokerage
    Thank you.

  169. Manoj says:

    LTP Percentage for buy orders is not good..
    Zerodha should remove that LTP percentage and needs to give freedom to customer to chose their own put or call option in bank nifty.
    Otherwise it’s a black mark for zerodha.

    Second question is-
    How can I get email or update from Depository Participant(DP) account.if I change email id .

    • Faisal says:

      Yes, there will be a charge of Rs 50 per email change request. This is because the email ID has to the updated with the exchanges and the depository.
      Yes, your email ID with the depository will also be updated.

    • Zerodha Social says:

      Hey Mayank,

      Yes, the charge for change in registered email or mobile no is Rs 50. This charge is because we also update the same in the Exchange and depository records.

    Hello Sir,
    I’m a regular trader in Zerodha.
    I’m doing lot of technical analysis to come up with a strategy of my own.
    Please help me with the formula of how the time based renko chart is calculated in kite.
    It is different from the conventional non time base renko chart calculation.
    I tried a lot to understand, but my calculation is not matching with the kite tool.

    Thanks in advance.


    • Matti says:

      Hi Manjunath, there is no concept of time when you talk about Renko charts.

      • Manjunath says:

        Hello Sir,

        In kite, Renko chart for different time frames looks different for the same brick size.
        You can check for nifty in the kite platform, you will see the difference for different time frames.
        The original form of Renko chart will not depend upon time, but here in ‘kite’ their is relation ship established with time as well.

        Please help me understand the relationship & also the formula behind it.

    Thanks Matti!

    simply you means that one should buy stock before ex date and hold it utpto the ex date? what if i sell before ex date which i purchased one month earlier?

    Apart from this, the respond could have contain two or three scenerios which could happen regarding dividend’s ex date purchasing or selling the stocks.

  215. Yash says:

    Hi Nitin,

    We appreciate your efforts making trading seamless for normal/small trader.

    since it seems that you are going to sunset your support by email and starting some kind of automated/AI processes to answer queries on tickets. It is well deserved step but i guess you need to have some physical person for support that can be straighforword to the user’s questions. Your AI doesn’t look like that much smarter yet. so kindly facilitate us needed support.

    yesterday i created ticket #201807033994412 and i am not okay with your automated reply.

    here is my query:
    i bought shares on 2nd july
    companies ed-date was 3rd july and record date is 5th july. payment date is 1st august.
    if i sell shares on 4th july will i get dividend(ignore short delivery case)? or else what will happen if i sell on 5th july?

    please guide ASAP

    • Matti says:

      Hey Yash, you’ll receive the dividend even after selling if you held the stock on the ex-date. In this case, since you’ve bought before ex-date, you’ll receive the dividend.

      Also, regarding the support, whenever you create a ticket, it is always assigned to a real person. 🙂 The idea is that most queries are generic and are answered on the portal. If you still have questions, you can raise a ticket and an agent will answer. Now that you know the answer, we’d appreciate it if you could respond to your ticket with feedback as to how it could have been answered better. 🙂

      • Yash says:

        Hey matti,

        Please have a look into assigned ticket #201807033994412. We search for answers on portal first if found unsatisfactory then we will create ticket or query. And as you say that ticket is assigned to a pysical person then are they responding without reviewing the question and respond with what category fits the question’s headlines like a google search.

        Also we can find answers on open forum but that are not trustworthy at all.

        “The more active and satisfactory your tech support team the better convenient your client will feel and being loyal to you” this is the main thing we focus in IT industries and results are well known for everyone.

        If you are looking for good tech support then hire me and i’ll handle for all best assistance and can handle team as well. I am having suffice experience.

      If you’re using CO, you’ll have to exit the position once the target price is hit. If you want to enter the target while entering the position, you’ll need to use BO.

    I had invested in the fund: HDFC Balanced Fund in Coin Platform in SIP. But it has been recently merged with HDFC Hybrid Equity Fund, and so for this month’s EMI it’s showing status – Purchase not allowed for this fund/ AMC stopped subscription.
    Please suggest a way out such that I can continue to remain invested in the merged fund. Any other profitable suggestions are also welcome.

      Volume, by definition, would require a trade to happen, which means that both a buy and a sell needs to be filled. So, there’s no concept of separate buy volume or sell volume. You can see the total bids/asks in the market depth.

      If you’re placing an intraday trade, you can use bracket orders. For an overnight trade, you’ll have to place the stoploss and target separately.

  242. Vinay says:

    I understant. But genuine zerodha customers like us suffer from this. I have 5 accounts of my family members with zerodha. Just opened new account in my father’s name and wanted to dematerialize his old share certificates. There current value is low and dematerializing this at such high charges will not be worth their value. Kindly revise the charges to bit reasonable value.

    Thank you.

  243. Vinay says:

    Why did you guys changed your ‘Dematerialization charges’?
    Earlier you use to charge 10 rs. per certificate subject to minimum of 25 rs. per ISIN. Now you have changed it to 150 rs. per certificate. Why this huge change? It doesn’t match with your philosophy of minimal charges for small investors.

    • Matti says:

      Hey Vinay, the decision was taken keeping many factors in mind. One of them being that our charges were so low that individuals trading with other entities also started sending us requests.

    Dear Sir, i want know that at the time of deep OTP selling in Bank nifty, order is rejected every time due to RMS rule. I have asked to zerodha support team, they are telling that every day they have some range for bank nifty. trade will execute only within that range only and the range will change as per the volatility of bank nifty.
    I want to know that can i trade in this boundary condition. If i want to make a position for next expiry date then what will be the range for that?
    2. What is the procedure to know the range ? its very difficult to call the support center everyday to know the range.
    3.How i can make a position for 4-5 days in bank nifty with daily basis range? today may be the range is 1 % for low volatility and with in this range if i make o position in option selling but if tomorrow the volatility will very high then i will loss my all the money in option selling. What is the solution for this?
    Please give your valuable feedback.

  269. Deepak Singj says:

    Heyy Nitin Sir,
    Why leverage for MIS is different for every stock ??
    I mean if even in worst case loss would be recovered from client allocated cash. There are situations when a good profitable stock is not available or available on low leverage.
    Is it possible to provide flat leverage on every stock ???

    • Matti says:

      Deepak, the leverage afforded to any stock is determined by the RMS team based on various parameters, like liquidity, volatility, etc.,. Also, whenever leverage is afforded for a stock, there is a chance that the loss the client runs may be more than what he has in his account. The broker always runs this risk while giving leverage, and so does thorough math before affording any leverage.

      For e.g., let’s assume stock X costs Rs. 100 and is afforded 14 x leverage. So, with 100 rupees in your account, you can purchase stocks worth 1400 rupees. Let us also assume that the circuit limit for this stock is 20%. So, if the stock suddenly falls 20%, the loss here is Rs. 20 * 14 = Rs. 280 (1.8 times more than the money in your account). Now, this would lead to a debit on your account. So, in order to make sure a scenario like this doesn’t arise, the leverage multipliers are different for each stock.

    Can anyone please bother to take into my query. I filed the ticket on 13th and still there is no response. Neither on this forum I am getting any response.

    I am a user of kite as well as coin. Recently purchased the mutual funds worth Rs. 40000 via coin, in 4 MF, and planned to make the similar purchases every month. But I am facing some issues due to which I am very much disappointed and really worried about the security of my investment.

    1. I think Zerodha, as part of my purchase, sent my KYC details to CkycIndia. CKycIndia sent an email to for confirmation of my kyc containing my details. To my surprise, the kyc details that you have sent to them was not correct. The details are mine but the *photograph* was not. You ask for all details, including photo, pan card aadhar number and etc then how can you make such a big mistake to attach the photograph of some other person. When contacted CKYC then mentioned that only zerodha can file the kyc again and they cannot do anything from their side.

    I filed the ticket on 13th Dec 17 but there is no response yet.

    2. Though coin web site mentions that you have allocated the MF but I did not received any mail from AMC on confirmation. Am I not suppose to expect confirmation emails from fund houses? Is there any other way, apart from coin, to know that I am really invested in said mutual funds?

    Please resolve my issues soon.

    Hello Team,

    I have some on-going Direct MF SIPs on the Zerodha Coin Platform. As far as I know these are being invested in the AMCs as lumpsum investments by Zerodha. So, just wanted to know what happens if these AMCs stop lump sum investments in MFs after their AUM cross a particular threshold, as quite a few of them are doing at the moment. What would be the status of my currently invested MFs and what steps would Zerodha take to ensure continuity of the SIPs?

      The right way to do this as per the regulations is to do the entire OTP verification.I suggest you get your mobile number updated on your Aadhaar.

    Hi…………When we place a request for sell or buy order in f &o , why don’t we have the option of stop loss , target, trailing stop loss,as we have it in bracket orders. When can we expect it to be added?

    • sharmila says:

      Can I get an answer for this?

      • Matti says:

        BO in stock options is not allowed as a risk management measure Sharmila. This is because the stoploss order in BO is an SLM order and this could lead to a rather large impact cost in illiquid stock option contracts.

    Hello Nithin,

    I have been using Kite for couple of years now and often trade into F&O. I have found an issue and this is the 4th time, I have the same precise issue. When squaring off a future position, if I update an already placed order multiple times (the order price is no where close to the current market price), system keeps the copy of stale order and executes it without showing that order on the screen. Can you please raise this concern to your quality assurance team and look into the problem. As I said this is the 4th time I ended up in a short position without I explicitly placing it, the sort position got created because of updating an existing square off position.

    I have one question for Zerodha application on holdings. I purchase XXXX shares two time in slot of 10 each with different price.

    First slot I purchase at 49/- approx. and Second Slot at 65/- approx.

    After second slot purchase Avg price of each share become 57/-. approx.

    After some time I sold out 10 shares for 74/-.

    Now in zerodha application Avg. price it showing 65/- approx for remaining 10 shares.

    Could you please help me to understand why Avg. price increases from 57/- to 65/- ? Is there is any specific reason behind it?

      Hey Vicky. The Bank Nifty index isn’t traded. The future/option contracts based on the index are. As such, the volume for the index is always 0.

  311. Jiten says:

    Hey Nithin
    I am a intraday trader can I file ITR 4 sugam and show my profit at 8% though actual profit is more?

  312. Ajay Patil says:

    Thanks for your reply Nithin 🙂

    I have one more doubt, i want to manage my account, my dads and my brother at in intra day, is that possible i can manage at same time buying or selling in all 3 accounts. i can keep all passwords same for 3 accounts in zerodha, as managing individually its becoming difficulty for me in intra day separately. is there any solution please do let me know thank you

    Was not able to sell ICICI Lombard shares today on kite as I was not able to add through market watch. Was also not able to exit the position through holdings tab. Please look into this matter as this is the issue with every new listings.

  315. manoj bhurat says:


    I insist to my friends, relatives to open account in zerodha. But in the past few days i had bad experience with Zerodha service in account opening. Whatever issue with the account opening kindly communicate with the respective people on immediate basis so they can try resolving. But i found no communication from your end.

    For example – Kavi Choudhari completed all formalities but till date no update. Kavi choudhari called you regarding account opening but no response from you side. These guys already paid fees, account opening documentation.

    I do not know what is the problem. All leads provided by me is genuine. They are ready to open account with zerodha. they paid your fees, documentation etc but….. They are so much busy in their work so they do not have much time. They are ready to help you in documentation but need your support. Kindly communicate the issue with them through email, phone. Update them on regular basis if there is any issue in account opening form.

    @Nithin, My client id is ZV1748. I gave around 4 to 5 genuine leads in last month who already paid account opening fees also. But till date account is not open. Even they do not know the status of account. Today i received call from my friend and they asked me Zerodha account status. They said” Very bad service from Zerodha in account opening”. I really feel very bad. Even i do not have much time to write such long email but…… anyway..

    I am expecting little bit more service from Zerodha. I hope so… else zerodha will lose good leads

  316. raunaq says:


    I am using zerodha screener and wondering what would be the lowest market cap company we should filter? 50 crores? and maybe some insights on the P/E would help to some extent too.

  317. Debashis says:

    Why are my tickets not being addressed properly?

  318. Vinatee Gupta says:

    Hi Nithin,

    I am facing one issue in KITE/Q-backoffice tool.
    I have transferred my previous Demat account to Zerodha with all my holdings transferred.
    I have edited Buying Price for my Holdings because Buying price was not available as holdings got transferred. I have sold my SPICEJET Holding through Kite and it is available in my P/L Report in Q tool.

    Now I have bought SPICEJET but it is not showing the correct Buying Price. What I should do to get correct Buy price show in Q and Kite both.

  319. raj says:

    I have just started trading with zerodha after switching from another broker.I find two things really lacking:-

    1.In the q back office in ledger there is no way to check the internals of the daily F&O obligation amount i.e the mark to market scriptwise, unless i login to archaic bo in internet explorer which most of the time gives errors.Cant you provide an option in the ledger itself.Even logging to email will be time consuming.

    2.Secondly,open positions do not get updated till the next there any option to view with the closing rate atleast till late evening?

    Hopefully these basic but valuable things provided by other brokers can be resolved without me shifting back.

    • Venu says:

      1. The contract note emailed to your everyday is a contract note cum bill and explains to you the basis of the amounts posted on your ledger. The MTM & the charges are present on this contract note.

      2. You can check open positions on backoffice on Q here.

      • raj says:

        In the emailed contract notes for futures position the MTM is shown on daily basis but when the position is squared off on that day there is no calculation and it has to be done manually by comparing the turnovers from the previous day.Also the emails do not come on the same day as the time as the “fno obligation amount “is shown in ledger and thus no confirmation and calculation can be done from our side till very late.

        Secondly,open positions in Q do not get reflected till the next day also. So at the end of the
        trading day or late night also if you click in open positions for the current date it will show as “No open positions” even though there are positions.

  323. Subhash says:

    I tried to buy Banknifty24aug1723900PE. But the order got rejected with below message.
    Status message
    RMS:Rule: Option Strike price based on Ltp percentage for entity account-ZB9950 across exchange across segment across product

    Please let me know, why order rejected. and In which other way I can purchase it ?

    • Venu says:

      There is a restriction on Banknifty options strikes range due to a violation of broker level open interest of 15%. The range for today, Thursday, 24 Aug 2017 is 1.3%. You can trade option strikes plus or minus 1.3% from this ltp, which is +/- 300 points. If you’re placing a trade for a strike outside this range, your order is bound to get rejected.

      Refer to this NSE link for more explanation on open interest violations.

  324. Pratik says:

    Dear Nithin/team,

    Would you please let me know if there is an option to sell stocks of a company (e.g. Infosys buyback offer coming up) in a buyback offer online via the Kite portal?

    If not, what’s the procedure to follow in Zerodha?

    Your reply would be really appreciated.


  325. ONKAR says:


    First of all thank you for your replies. being a customer of your great services I have one suggestion to make it more convenient for all of us. can you add price alert feature in kite. as a trader we have to always look on Pc or laptop for price changing or lets say pivot point touch but if you add the feature where we can set the alert at a particular price or lets say R1,R2,R3 – S1,S2,S3. that would be really good for us. I guess have this feature (but kite is just awsome). it will be very helpful for us.
    Thank you.

  326. Swati says:

    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 ?

    • hmm.. can’t be happening Swati unless the bid/ask has that Rs 1 or Rs 2 spread.

      • Swati says:

        Unfortunately it is happening, even I initially questioned myself several times that it can’t be true but now fairly convinced. I have significant experience into Technology and have run Electronic Trading Capital Markets for large global bank. Today only while trading on BEML, FUT the price was at 1800 when I executed the order at market price, the order got executed at 1798.2. I guess BEML is fairly liquid. Could there be a possibility that the internal system while putting the order into exchange is tinkering with the price to prioritize the execution ? Or there is some latency on the price which shows up vs the actual price. If possible I would strongly encourage your testing team or you yourself to try out at your end.

        • Venu says:

          As brokers we only provide clients a platform to place orders. Order matching and subsequent execution based on available bid/ask prices happens at the Exchange end. The OMS that we use for sending out orders is from Thomson Reuters who is probably the biggest in the context of the Indian markets. There can’t be latency in the prices that show up, cos if it did, it would have affected a larger set of our clients. Slippage is the only explanation that I can think of, however since you always have the option of placing a limit order, it’s best to place one.

  327. Minu says:


    Kite is a best trading platform having only trading related tool that good.

  328. Onkar says:

    Hello sir. I appreciate for your services which you are providing. I just have one suggestion that can you increase the intraday margin atleast on nifty 50 stocks. I have account in zerodha but for trading purpose I am still using other broker. I hope that many traders will appreciate your next move regarding this.
    Thank you

    • Onkar, as a broker offering higher leverage increases the risk in the business. Also as a trader, I can tell you with all the data I have that people who take lesser leverage are the most profitable.

    Thank you.

  333. Deepak Vishwakarma says:

    I have created new account on Zerodha and for testing purpose bought SBIN in MIS – intraday. I saw that for SBIM the margin is 14 times. I bought only 1 stock qty so I should have got 14 stock qty but as I checked the position it says only 1 qty was bought. Also I sold the stock and Rs 0.7 profit, so I should have earned Rs 0.7 * 14 = Rs 9.8 but that did not happen. Am I missing something?

    MIS / DAY
    2017-08-11 09:38:03
    2017-08-11 09:38:03

    • Ah it doesn’t work like that. If SBI is at Rs 300, if you have Rs 1000 in your account, you will get to buy for Rs 14000 of SBI. You will get 0.7*14 only if you had bought 14 shares and not 1 share.

    Dear sir, zerodha is very good for service that you are offering but still I am using Angel broking for just one reason as I am intraday trader and they are offering 40 times margin for Thier intraday product which makes good difference. I wish If you really start this product on your platform that would be really good thing for traders like us to join zerodha service.
    Thank you.

  338. Ameer says:


    i am a customer of zerodha, i feel that very important tools are missing in zerodha which are there in sharekhan

    1. tools for marking demand/supply zone, like entry stoploss and target
    2. retracement tool , which is also used for marking the zones….. simple marking without colors where two lines will be drawn one as proximal and other as distal line

    any plans to have this tools in near term

    Hi Nithin,

    I am very happy with Zerodha service except that I am missing a very basic functionality.


    SMS for delivery traded positions. All brokers (well, most) send sms either realtime when a trade goes through or send it at end of day for all the trades that were triggered on exchange.

    Why does Zerodha not have such a basic feature. It is very much required.

    – Somenath

    • Venu says:

      Hi Somenath,

      The Exchanges today send SMS’s at the end of the day which is why we’ve stopped sending SMS’s. If you’ve placed an order through our dealing desk, you’ll receive an SMS upon the execution of the trade.

      Additionally, you always have the option of tracking your trades on the Kite mobile app.

  354. Harsh Shah says:

    I had placed a stop loss at 40560 on a lot of silver micro. The price didn’t reach that level, yet the stop loss got executed, and whats worse is that the trade got executed at 40648, ripped me off. What is the meaning of this?

  359. Suyash Baderiya says:

    Hi Nithin,

    It really pains to write this.

    I placed an intraday MIS order at 3:16:37 to enter a long position. Since all orders squared off by Zerodha at 3:20 are charged with call and trade brokerage, I placed an order to exit that position, which got rejected at 3:19:34 saying “rms: auto square off block”. The position finally got squared of at 3:22:22. Moreover, I didnt get a postback for the auto square off trade. When I called customer support, this is what happened:

    1) Call 1: I was told that Zerodha puts a block at 3:18-3:19 and no orders are accepted beyond that point. She couldnt point to any public info. When I asked why should I pay for the mistake from Zerodha’s content team, she asked me to redial and press 1.
    2) Call 2: (This guy was very rude) As per instructions from previous call, I redialed and pressed 1 to get here. When I told this guy about the situation and asked the same question, he didnt listen to me and started talking in a loud voice WHILEI WAS SPEAKING (you cant expect this from customer support). Then he asked me to write a mail to support.

    This behavior from Zerodha support is not happening for the first time and has significantly reduced my trust in Zerodha. It’s not jjust about Rs. 20 (which I still want back) but about unprofessional behavior.

    I had conversation with one of your staff, Mr. Saleesh ,It was nice speaking with him, I explained my concern and he gave solution as well and he also agreed my concern and he said he will be going to raise concern with development team as well.

    It is good approach to take feedback from users/customer to make it friendly. Which is doing zerodha. Keep it up.

    @Nithin, I know this wrong place to type this question but i don’t have option as i am not getting a resolved and fixed solution for this. and i thought it would be better ,if you aware of this issues as its growing company and I am also one of well wisher of Zerodha

  367. Binoy says:

    I got a doubt, suppose 2 of us plan to increase the price of a stock in the exchange as below:

    I place sell order @ 100
    and my friend put buy order @100,

    while the stock is trading @90 will the trade gets executed & price of the stock hit high of 100 because of that single trade by us.
    Please consider this question as from a beginner stock trader…thanks a lot in advance

    • No your sell order will be stacked in priority. When your friends place a buy order at 100, it will be treated as market order and whoever is selling at 90 will get filled.

  368. Mrs Dhavale says:

    The brokerage calculator ( calculation of brokerage and actual brokerage charged per contract note varies. On a contact note of mine, I gained RS 874.78, whereas per brokerage calculator the figure works out to Rs 912. The Exchange transaction charges, stamp duty, Swacha Bharat cess and Krishi Kalyan Cess are not shown in above link. Can you pl incorporate in the above web page so that we will have definite idea of profit/loss after brokerage.

  369. Vivek says:


    Zerodha is a great platform but quite a few issues recently are raising serious concern, please take this as constructive feedback to resolve asap.
    1. Yesterday at the time of market close, orders were not accepted by the kite app, which had negative monetary impact.
    2. A few days back as well, during the day, traders were not able to put orders for couple of hours which again had a big monetary impact.
    3. Q-Backoffice doesn’t show correct P&L for many of the selected periods. Despite raising it multiple times with support team, it is still not corrected.
    4. One of my trades on a particular day was not accounted by Zerodha including the profits. Initially support team did agree to this but when i persisted they found out the issue and corrected this. If i had not kept daily log of my trades, I would have lost on these profits. Data integrity should be given top priority.

    I believe, Zerodha is truely a great platform but these technical issues need to be resolved to have a loyal clientele who can trust Zerodha for their money.

  374. Ramesh Sehgal says:

    I have long term holdings in another brokerage.I wish to sell them,I want to know whether it will be better to first transfer the shares to my Zerodha a/c or sell and transfer the money to Zerodha.In case I transfer them to Zerodha will there be any problem in claiming the long term capital gains.

    • Akshay.A says:

      Ramesh, You could wish to sell/transfer them. If the Date of acquisition is greater than the date of Sale then there isn’t any LTCG. It’ll be nil. There shouldn’t be any issues.

  375. Ramesh Sehgal says:

    I wanted to find out margin for 7500 put buy at 9300 and 7500 call buy at 9500 But the margin calculator is showing margin as 0 is it correct?

    • Akshay.A says:

      I’m assuming, you’re computing the margins to buy options which is why the calculator shows you the margins as N/A. This is because when you buy options, you’ve to pay the premium upfront which is always = Lot size* Premium amount.

      There are no margins charged separately for buying options.

    Hi Nithin/Team,

    First of all i want to thank you for clarifying all our questions. and i need one more clarifications.

    I wanted to start SIP in mutual fund. But I see is minimum amount is Rs 5000 but one of the your operator informed that, for first month it will go as lump sum and next month on wards we can invest min amount from Rs 500 ,till we wish.
    So next month on wards if i want to do SIP of Rs 500 on 10th and 24 of Every month ,how can I able to do it. ?
    As Currently I am seeing it on weekly or 15 days or monthly or quarterly. But I want to do two transaction one is on 10th and 2nd one is on 24th .Please do let me know how can I achieve it using Coin

    • Matti says:

      Hey Ajay, custom SIPs currently allow you to set up one date per month for investments. We’ll look into the possibility of making more dates possible. In the meantime, you can always run 2 SIPs parallelly for the same fund. 🙂

  383. Ajay Patil says:

    Hi Team/Nithin,

    I wanted to do SIP in Below MF’s Via Coin. but i don’t see below mutual funds. Could you please do let me know when it will be added in Coin.

  386. Akshay says:

    I recently started using Kite and it is a friendly platform but I have an issue to be clarified..

    My demat + Trading account was opened nearly 1.5 months ago but I started using it after a month and in the DASHBOARD SECTION IT WAS SHOWING AVAILABLE MARGIN OF Rs. -3.78. why was it negative?

    On 21 April, I added Rs. 5000 to my account (available margin became 4.99k) and did an equity delivery trade and the AVAILABLE MARGIN left was Rs 620.18. But when I checked it on 26 April, my AVAILABLE MARGIN decreased and became Rs 614.

    It is decreasing by nearly 1 Rs per day. Why is it so??

  387. Debarshi says:

    I have started using Kite only a few days ago and found this quite user friendly. For each transaction, I found that an amount of ₹10.35 is being deducted from my ledger balance showing “Being Payment Gateway Charges Debited”. I could not make out why this amount gets deducted since there is possibly no hints regarding this levy in brokerage calculator. Also does it depend on the charge/dividend bank a/c of the user?
    Apart from that, no mail was received from the exchange(NSE) in respect of my successful purchase of equities (CNC) today even if I received an sms from NSE asking for checking my registered mail. But one of my friends received a mail from NSE for an transaction exactly identical to that of myself (same price, same quantity etc) but for a different DP. What should I do now?

    • Debarshi, if you transfer money from your bank to Kite using payment gateway, this is the payment gateway providers charge. You can send an email to support, we will check if your email is captured correctly on NSE data base.

  388. Ramesh Sehgal says:

    I wanted to know whether there is any limit for the client set by you like Ventura has 7500 for Nifty future and 2500 for Bnaknifty and overall transaction limit of a day.

    • Single order limit of 7500 or 2500 is set by exchanges. If you want to trade more, you can do it in multiple orders. No overall transaction limit of Rs 25crores per day.

  389. neelima says:

    I have started using Kite only a few days ago. I have a query. Suppose NTPC current price is Rs.165. I want to buy it only at a price of Rs.155 or below. I want a delivery order only by paying full cash. It is difficult for me to track the price frequently and so can I place a SL order with trigger price. I mean “Can I place a SL order with trigger price of Rs.155 and limit price of Rs.154” or “Can I place a SL-M order with trigger price of Rs.155”.

    Please clarify.

    • You just have to place a CNC limit buying order with price as 155. No need to use SL and all. SL is required to buy above the current market price not below (people who trade trends like to buy when price moves up by certain points).

      • Debarshi says:

        Hi Nitin, thank you for your response. I just found an email delivered to my mail box from NSE around 9:50 pm.
        In respect of “Payment Gateway Charges”, kindly let me know where the charge is ‘bi-directional’ i.e. applicable for both transferring money from my bank to Kite and withdrawing money from kite to bank a/c? Your advice is requested to avoid such kind of charges in future.

  390. Ramesh Sehgal says:

    I wanted to know whether there is any limit on the Futures of Nifty and banknifty,also on overall limit.

  391. Sumit says:

    Please let me know how can i get the schedule of the quaterly result announcement date along with the TIME. Result calendar can be found in many sites but i am finding it difficult to identify the time of the announcements.

    I am able to setup price alert for intraday only. How can i setup price alert for equity share which desired price may hit after tomorrow, one week, one month.

    My issues is regarding taxes.I m an intraday derivative trader.From past 2-3 months I have noticed that though I m not making any losses I have been in loss of 3-5k per month because of taxes.I don’t thk my brokerage cost will b much of an issue as I normally execute 2 trades a day.Inspite if tis on reviewing my p&l for the month I found tat I made a loss of (505)&(109) during the past two months bt my taxes wer (5675)&(3900) respectively. I don’t undst how to reduce the turnover charges or wat ever head under which the taxes are charged from me…bcoz I m not a aggressive trader n neither I trade more than a single Lot and even aftr bringing my account to no profit no loss position ,I m losing approx 5k in taxes n brokerage ….can u help me regarding how to trade keeping in view the taxes ?( My account is with zerodha only )

  397. Nisha Maloo says:

    I m curious to know abt the allotment process in IPO…why don’t HNI or NII get allotted more then one lot in an oversubscribed IPO !??!???…and if it is usually a case ,that in case of oversubscription each account is eligible only for a single lot only,no matters how many lots they have applied for,then why ppl borrow huge chunk of money for subscribing in the NII or HNI segment???????i myself has applied for DMart from 3 different accounts.Each amounting to 2 lac but was allotted only single lot in each …:so is it bttr to invest only 45k instead of 6 lacs????

    • On issues like Dmart, it is very tough to get allotment when over subscription is as much. Maybe you could have gotten same allotment by applying for with 45k. In the HNI category, a client would have put up 1% and borrowed the rest. I think in dmart, if the HNI put up Rs 1 crore, he could apply for Rs 100 crores. I think the allotment would have been for around Rs 35lks, he would have made 35 lks gain out of which financing cost would have been 25 lks for 99 crores. But overall net, he would have still made upwards of Rs 10lks for 1 crore investment. But this was possible only because there was such a big pop on listing.

    Wanted to know if there is any alternative to check my P&L on financial year basis. ( Short-term and long-term gains)

    Also, I am wondering why you guys are not posting this question here!


  399. kotte says:

    sir kite holding postion column days chg what is that sir

  400. Anuj says:

    How options value calculated?
    Why it changes even if the value is same. For example:
    Nifty is currently at 9000 and I take a call option for 9100 @ 100(expiry after 1 month) but it weakens and at the end of the day call has value to 95 as nifty dips by 20 points. Now, next day even Nifty opens at 20 points plus it it has still value 95. Again if nifty gains 50 points and then fall 50 points i.e. reach to 9000 again and now it shows value 105. Why this happened?? Why at same value of nifty it has 3 different call values ? How these values calculated??

  403. Anurag Garg says:

    Please solve my doubt about bracket order. Example SBI CMP is 272, day high 276, day low is 268. I want to buy above 274 or shortsell below 270, but why is that it gets executed immediately at CMP?

    • Anurag, in bracket order currently there is no option to buy with a trigger order as entry. So you can either buy at current or lower price or at market price by placing a limit order at a higher price. Check the video on bracket orders here.

      • Anurag Garg says:

        Thanks Sir,
        But I believe without the above desired facility the entire idea of bracket order is null and void. Then in this case it is just a bracket order by name without the facility of bracket order. Can we expect Zerodha to come out with real bracket order with the all the benefits of bracket order? Sharekhan in this regard is real helpful which allows you to buy or short as per your comfort only.

  404. Sudhir says:

    Hello sir
    I have filled form on 16feb for opening a trading account but my old account was reactivated and demat account was also activated which I don’t required, and I closed it. But my bank account has not been changed yet, please see to the problem, I want to do trading on 14 March. My ID is PS0666

  405. ansh arora says:

    i want to ask u zerodha want 6 month bank statement to open account in F&O segment u required any minimum balance in bank account for 6 month bank statement

    • Some credits on the bank statement will do.

      • ansh arora says:

        nitin bro i hav two bank accounts if i send 6 month bank statement different account and link with zerodha diff account there is no issue na coz i my new account only 3 month old

        • Venu says:

          No problem, you can send a 6 month bank statement of the account which you aren’t going to map to Zerodha. You’ll just have to make sure, it’s your own account.

  407. saurabh says:

    The graphs are being wrongly displayed on the pi terminal for the 2nd march,’17. Candles for the day appears twice.
    And there are other places in kite as well where graphs of particular months repeat themselves. Its really shocking to see these anomalies as graphs are the most fundamental thing to be kept reliable at their best.

    When I switch in between internet from Bsnl to Tata Photon or the other way Zerodha Pi Software hangs and only solution is to close and restart.

    creating problem when I switch internet in between , this has effected my intraday trading few times , please give solution


    • siva says:

      Yes, this may happen in some cases when the re-connection is happening between two different networks. If the re-connection is with same network it would be normal. Will try to address it in coming days as there are few limitations for now.

  409. Abhilash says:

    I have finished Petition of huge STT trap on Expiry day mail send by your team … I have a doubt ,

    Nifty trading @ 8500 … I took OTM call of 8600 CE @ 50 before 1 week of expiry.
    I am tied up with some busy works and even I forget the position too.

    Now Nifty is on Bull run, on expiry day Nifty closed above 8600 ( say 8630). My strike price is 8600.

    Will my position become ITM because it closed above 8600 ?
    So do I have to pay the huge STT ?

  410. Sirimalla Kranthi says:

    I am not a full time trader, I want to invest in delivery trading and want to sell some weeks after I bought, can it possible? and also If I buy a share of Rs.100 as CNC and I want to sell it at when the price hits Rs.110 no matter how long it takes, can I give instruction and set leave? (will it execute my instruction without being in online?)

    • Yes, you can buy and sell anytime you want. Yes you can place a limit selling order and close your system, you don’t have to be online. But this order has to be placed everyday as all pending orders get cancelled end of day.

    sir, is there any margin changes in mcx by allowing institutional investor,banks and mutual funds in commodity future market. it means smaller margin to higher margin.

  412. Anand says:

    Dear Nithin Kamath

    your kite web application is excellent and very user friendly..but it is lagging one important feature itseems.
    As a client of you I desired that. If it is possible to include kite web next versions please develop it.
    Feature details.
    for example I want buy nifty feature like below..
    Buy above 8858 Tgts: 8873 / 8888 SL: 8838
    So your app should buy the nifty feature when it hits 8858 ..once done it has to place orders for target for 8873 and stop at 8838. So if my target 8858 hits it should automatically cancel my stop loss order and vice versa…
    Including such a feature in your web application or mobile android application may draw you millions and it is very useful for us also. One thing is for sure it will become very attractive feature..Please include this in your next version

    • When you sell from holding, for that day it shows in position. It shows there because many people like to sell stocks and then buy back before end of day. If you don’t want to buy back, ignore that position, end of day it will automatically disappear. Check this video. You can always call our call center, 080-40402020, it is on our website.

    Ex:Suppose I trade in Crude Oil.As per rules in a single order I can buy 100 lots or 2.5% of OI.Now I have free cash still left.So I put first order of 100 lots and again I placed 2nd order of 100 lots more.Another 3rd order of 100 lots.So now I have 3 orders;100 lots each order..Now can I exit the the 3 orders at the same price or I need to exit manually one by one by clicking on EXIT.(Assume I am using Cover Order). ???

      If you are serious about a career in investment, then you need to look at getting yourself a CFA certificate from CFA Institute, USA.

    I’M F&O trader and also invest for long term.If I mention income from F&O as business income and if I sold shares after 12 monthes then will I eligible for capital gain benefit ? Can I be the trader and investor at the same time?

    • Venu says:

      Yes, you can claim the LTCG benefit while being a trader trading the F&O segment. But to do that, you’ll have to have a clear distinction between your F&O and Equity trades and you’ll have to maintain proper books of accounts. As long as you’re able to convince the assessing officer (if needed), you could claim the benefit of all LTCG’s.

    Dear Sir,

    Can I place a buy order at a price higher than the market price as After Market Order?

    It it possible with Kite?

  429. M Srinu says:

    Dear Sir,

    I am trading using kite. When I put a limit order, the order is executing at market price. Please advice me

    • Venu says:

      Are you sure you’re placing the order the right way? You would use a limit order:
      a) If you wish to buy at a price lower than current market price
      b) If you wish to sell at a price higher than the current market price

Why is this is not possible as I have opened account through him because I wanted to use his services, but now I do not require them and want to use somebody else’s service.

    • Venu says:

      Tagging an account to a partner is a one time activity, you can choose to avail services from any 3rd party of your choice. This has no bearing on the account you hold with us.

  432. siva says:

    in the contract notes no DP charges are shown but recently DP charges are showing in ledger. what are these?
    these occurred thrice recently.

    • Venu says:

      DP or Depository participant charge is levied on stock movement out of demat account which managed by depositories (NSDL or CDSL). This has no relation to contract note which captures all trades and related charges executed on the stock exchanges (NSE or BSE). Hence DP charges and also demat account maintenance charges are levied separately on the ledger and not on contract note.

  433. Sudheer Kumar says:

    Hi Nithin,
    Thank you for this convenient trading platform, and the extensive educational section. Occasionally I’ve some issues with Kite, still trading has been a pleasant experience here. Please consider adding these two indicators to Kite: Laguerre and Stochastic histogram. Laguerre seems to be an oscillator for finding cycles.

    i am in markets more then 10+ years , used many charting and trading software and have ac with many broker also , but not faced this kind of disappointing from anyone, yeah they may be take more time to resolve and yeah ofcourse charges higher in terms of brokerage and other charges but my trade wil nt stop , and i think its first priority,
    if trade wil nt placed then no use of lower charges or free.
    every time i got very bad feelings when try to talk or mail to sales person .

    “There is always no charge for dreams , it only costs when u try to manifest them”

    Today(Mon) I tried Intraday on galada telecom BSE
    Prev close Rs10.4 open 10.0 L/U price band 8.32 to 10.48Rs
    cur mar price 10.4 steadily no ups no downs
    in MIS I tried SL with price 9.70,9.50, trigger 9.60,9.50,9.30,8.40 all orders rejected
    it always says stop price is not reasonable default values for price and trigger are cur mar prices
    so what is the use of SL if we have to buy at mar price
    in MIS I tried SL-M with price 9.60 order rejected it says check last trade price(10.40) vs trigger price(9.60)
    if we set trigger price as 10.40 then we have to buy at LTP (10.40) then what is the use of SL-M
    Only MIS Limit order with price 9.00 was placed
    even when they have to explain about SL orders they don’t say directly with simple examples they confuse us by saying that place SL order for the stocks we already possess. they don’t say how to buy on SL SL-M orders
    I think they profit upon our orders by using some software as our orders are processed by their servers

    we have to understood that information is eqal to money they don’t give information clearly

    Hi Nithin,

    I am an account holder with zerodha, i have some query, I know this is not the correct platform to put up this question, but i will be really great-full to you to please reply on my queries.

    I want to know some thing about binary option trading, i have been doing virtual binary option trading with virtual money for the past some weeks and i found it profitable. Can you please let me know that weather it is legal in India? and if it is then which broker will be good to open an account with?


    • Ajay, it is not legal to trade them in India.

      • Ajay says:

        Thanks for your quick reply Nithin,

        What if, i get an account with some foreign broker registered to deal in binary option trading, and then start trading in binary options, further if i will pay all my taxes in this relation also, in that case also it is not legal?

          It’s a grey area, there are no regulation that explicitly allows/disallows it. Since you wouldn’t know the regulatory structure of the entity you’re opening an account with, it’s best avoided.
