  • Q What is an AMO?
    AMO stands for After Market Order. It is a facility that Kotaksecurities.com extends to its customers whereby they can place orders even after the trading hours of a particular day.
  • Q What is the advantage of an AMO?

    An AMO has the following advantages:

    • It allows the customer to place an order even after the regular trading hours During
      4.15 p.m. to 9.30 p.m.
      10.30 p.m. to 7.30 a.m.
      8.30 a.m. to 9.00 a.m.
    • Based on the fluctuations in the Market on a particular day and taking into account factors such as the closing price of a particular scrip, recommendations on scrips given by Kotak Securities.com, the customer might want to place an order using AMO which would be executed when the market opens the next day.
  • Q How can I place an AMO?

    Now customers can place After Market Orders after the trading hours of a day. The process is simple and AMO's can be placed in two ways:

    • After Market Orders can be placed by the customer himself by logging into his Kotak trading account and choosing AMO.This facility is available in the time slots mentioned below:
      4.15 p.m. to 9.30 p.m.
      10.30 p.m. to 7.30 a.m.
      8.30 a.m. to 9.00 a.m.

      An AMO can be placed with a price band of +/-10% of the closing price at the end of the day. Any AMO for scrip that is beyond this price band would not be placed .

      All AMO orders will be placed in the market in the order of the price bands i.e all market orders will be placed first and then all orders on the basis of price band would be placed in ascending order.

      Any AMO order placed can get cancelled before it getting placed at the exchange, in the absence of sufficient margins at the beginning of the day margin calculation process. Hence clients are requested to check the orders status during the market hours in the order report to find the status of the AMO order placed.

      It is advisable to place limit orders i.e at a specific price that is more or less closer to the previous day's closing price instead of market orders i.e orders where price is quoted at 0, as there is a possibility of getting a freak rate because market orders are executed at the best possible counter rate.

      eg. Reliance Industries closing price on 10/11/2005 is Rs.785.72

      In case an AMO market order (i.e rate is 0) is placed for buy 100 shs of reliance and if this is the first buy trade to hit the market on 11/11/2005 and on the other end if the first sell trade to hit the market is Rs 825/- then the buy order would get executed at Rs. 825/- which would be a very high buy.

      NOTE: The time period between 12.00 am to 4.30 am may be utilized for site maintenance and AMO order can not be placed during this period.

  • Q Can I fix any price on scrip that I want to place an AMO on?

    For an AMO order, the price of a scrip can be fixed within a price band of +/- 10% of the closing price. If the price is fixed beyond this price band, the AMO order will not be executed.

    For example,

    If the closing price of a scrip X is Rs.100, the customer can place an AMO within the price range of Rs. 90 to Rs. 110.

  • Q Under what circumstances can an AMO order get rejected?
