As per the exchange regulation, each stock market orders need to be capped with certain quantities. The maximum quantity in one order is also called as Quantity Freeze Limit. The applicable quantity limit is as per the following table.

 Segment Maximum Quantity OR Turnover per order (whichever is lower)
 Equity Cash  50000 Qty OR 50 Lacs Turnover
 Nifty  2800 Qty OR 3 Cr Turnover
 BankNifty  1200 Qty OR 3 Cr Turnover
 Finnifty  2800 Qty OR 3 Cr Turnover
 MidCPNifty  5500 Qty OR 3 Cr Turnover

For the list of all futures contract please Click here. To ensure the better risk management, TradeSmart has capped to 50000 qty (or 50 lac turnover) per order for equity cash.

Reason for this regulation:

  1. This helps to regulate the flow of the order within a specified limit and avoid unexpected moves in either direction.
  2. To avoid the execution of any accidental/intentional bulk orders that may affect the price of the stock. This risks the other traders too.
  3. This ensures the better liquidity in the market as the orders are going part by part.

How to place bulk quantities?

For bulk quantity, place the multiple orders to buy/sell more number of quantities. You may also place basket order in which you put multiple orders and submit at once.

      Hello Parth,
      If you are writing any Nifty option then you just need to maintain margin that is required by the exchange.
      In the example, you want to write 4000 qty (4000/75=53 lots aprox) Nifty call, the carry forward margin required is 32,33,000 (61000*53) considering 61000 margin to carry forward 1 lot of Nifty as on 1st Oct,2015 margin requirement.
      To trade in intraday, for 53 lots of Nifty call writing you would need 808250 (3233000/4) Margin. Intraday position will be squared off after 3.10pm.

      Please refer our article for Margin Required for Intraday Trading.
