A Bracket Order is a special type of order through which you can take an intra-day position and take advantage of extra exposure while being protected through a stop loss order and a profit booking order.
This can be placed by three orders simultaneously,
- The first is the limit order for the buying or selling that you are looking for.
- The second order is a profit booking order that you set as the profit that meets your expectations.
- The third order is a stop loss order. A stop loss order helps you exit a position as soon as the stock hits that bottom of loss. This order is a reflection of the loss that you are willing to take with the stock in concern.
All these orders are placed simultaneously. As soon as any one of the profit limit or stop loss is hit, the other is cancelled. Profit or stop loss order is not going to be placed unless the limit order is executed. It is also important to note that a bracket order is an intraday order and needs to be squared off before intraday closing of 3:15pm.
Benefits of Bracket Order
- Bracket orders make sure that your profit or loss lies between two limits of an acceptable profit and bearable loss that you set.
- Because the maximum loss is limited, the margin requirements are really low (between 2% and 2.5%) compared to the 10-11% margin requirement in other risk based trades.

Note: When placing a bracket order if the order gets filled in multiple executions (this happens when there are not enough counter orders available in market matching your order quantities and prices), each of the execution will be considered as a separate order and you will be charged brokerage & taxes separately for each partial fill. The same applies for auto-square off charges too if squared off by our RMS team.

But I guess Sharekhan is providing SL buying order with BO! Then I think it is doable. Why do not you fulfill all the requirements.
Can’t comment on another broker. However, we will check if something could be done for this.
Yes, I got it, its just that it would be more convinient, thats all……
We understand your concern and would be happy to provide you in case the bracket order structure is changed. However, you can still place manual SL order for buy and sell separately for which you may have to maintain respective margin in your account.
Why is the first buying/selling order limit? The most useful order is SL. Limit order may not give the fill and Market order gives slippage. So why so much inconvience with bracket orders?
As we had addressed your query through chat, we would like to inform you that earlier, there was only a market option in first leg to place. Recently, limit order has been introduced. Both first leg and second leg could not be a stop loss as per bracket order structure.
