    • Stop Loss Order:
      It is an order placed, which gets activated only when the market price of the relevant scrip reaches or crosses a threshold price, which is called trigger price. Until then the order does not enter the market but sits with the NSE.
  • QWhat is the procedure for placing Stop Loss Orders

    Stop Loss order can be placed while placing a fresh order as well as a square off order.

    Basics of Stop Loss Order :-

    Buy : Trigger price entered should be greater than the market price and order price will be greater than the trigger price or you can keep it as market price as well.

    Sell : Trigger price entered should be less than the market price and order price will be lesser than the trigger price or you can keep it as market price as well.

    When the market hits the trigger price, the order is forwarded to the exchange and the same gets traded at a price between the Trigger price and the order price.

  • QWhat happens in case my shares are short sold?

    At any point of time when the shares are short sold and the same are not delivered for the pay-in to the exchange, then the shares go in for auction wherein the shares are purchased on behalf of the client in the auction market and delivered to the actual buyer.

    To carry on the auction procedure, 150% of the amount shall be blocked in your account. The same shall be reversed subject to the debit of the actual auction charges.

    We request you to view the details in your ledger. The path is as follows:

    Kotaksecurities.com -- Login to Trade -- My Account -- View My Ledger -- BSE/NSE.

    Kindly note that you can also transfer the shares from some other demat account to your demat account with Kotak in order to adjust the shares for the pay-in. However, the shares should be transferred one day prior to the pay-in date before 3.30 p.m.
