Frequently Asked Questions

You will be able to cancel & modify your open/pending orders. However, it is advisable to cancel them before activating the Kill switch.

Open positions remain active, and you can only exit/square-off at the market price, by using the multiple square-off functionality available in the positions section. It is recommended to exit/square-off all your positions before activating the Kill Switch, as you will not be able to place a single contra order.

SIP orders under the equity segment will not be blocked. They will proceed as scheduled.

The orders will be blocked only on the Neo mobile app & website - for single orders, basket orders and trade from charts. You will still be able to place orders from Stockcase, Smallcase, SIPIT, Cherry, Nest Trader, Trade APIs and other integrated Fintech platforms.

There is no manual re-enable option on the Neo mobile app or website. The system will auto-enable segments at midnight. For urgent matters, contact us through the Support or Feedback options on the platforms.
