1. By Tejas Khoday March 23, 2018 Introducing Cover Orders As you all know that we have launched cover orders recently. It took me a while to write this post but here it is finally. Today, I will explain everything you need to know about Cover Orders, how to use it on our platforms. So let’s begin. What is a cover order? A cover order is an intraday order which can be either placed in a market or a limit order type with a mandatory Stop-loss order. Here’s a simple explanation of some of its features: 1. Compulsory Stop-loss order As explained earlier, a cover order needs to be placed with a compulsory stop-loss order. This stop-loss order is a market order and must be placed within a given range. The stop- loss order is modifiable. 2. Higher Leverage Since a cover order is placed with a stop-loss order, it locks the losses to a certain limit and minimizes the trading risk. Because of a pre-defined stop loss, it helps us as a broker provide extra leverage on cover orders. The leverage provided for a stock/scrip depends on the volatility, liquidity and overall risk. Also, scrips can be allowed/disallowed depending on the underlying circumstances for the purpose of safe risk management. Hence, it is subject to change from time to time. You can calculate the margin required for cover orders with our Margin Calculator. 3. Auto Square Off As mentioned earlier, the cover orders are an intraday time frame, therefore they 1/5
