  • Types of BSE Trading

    BSE Trading can be of two types – intraday or day trading and delivery trading.

    In intraday trading, you need to close or square-off the transaction (long as well as short) within the same day. In this type of trading, you are allowed to use margins. Margins refer to the funding given by the broking firm to enhance your exposure. This facility permits you to buy or sell higher number of stocks, which otherwise would need you to invest more funds.

    In delivery trading, you need to hold the stocks for more than a day and hence take their delivery. There is no margin concept in this type of trading.

  • Transactions

    Transactions are processed within a T+2 settlement framework or two working days.
