Limit orders allow you to control the price at which you buy or sell a stock. For buy limit orders, it will be executed only at the limit price or lower, while for sell limit orders, the order will be carried out at the limit price or higher.

A market order is an instruction to your broker to buy or sell stock shares, bonds, or other assets at the best available price in the current financial market. If the asset is a large-cap stock or a popular exchange-traded fund (ETF), there will be plenty of willing buyers and sellers, so you can complete the trade almost instantly at a cost close to the latest posted price.

A stop-loss order is an instruction to buy or sell stock once the price of that stock reaches a certain level. Stop-loss orders are designed to prevent investors from losing too much money on a security position. For example, setting a stop-loss at 10% below the price you paid for shares will prevent you from losing more than 10% of your investment.

  • For arriving at the settlement day all intervening holidays, which include bank holidays, NSE holidays, Saturdays and Sundays are excluded.

A Settlement Cycle refers to a calendar according to which all purchase and sale transactions done on T Day are settled on a T+1 basis. T = Trading Day and +1 means 1 consecutive working days after T (excluding all holidays). It simply means that if the customer buys share on 30th Jan 2023 = T, Then the transaction will be settled on 31st Jan'2023 = T+1. At NSE and BSE, trades in rolling settlement are settled on a T+1 basis i.e. on the next working day.

  • Trade to Trade settlement is a segment where shares can be traded only for delivery. It means Trade to Trade shares cannot be traded on intraday basis. Each share purchased /sold which is a part of this segment need to be taken delivery by paying full amount.
  • No intraday netting off/square off facility is permitted.
  • In case an investor fails to deliver the shares sold in the Rolling Settlement, an auction is conducted of the quantity short delivered/ not delivered on T+1, to meet the obligation of delivery of shares to the buyer. In this auction session, offers are invited from fresh sellers for quantities short delivered.
  • The Member through whom one has sold the shares is not allowed to offer shares in the scrip for which he has failed to make delivery.
  • If the seller fails to deliver the shares, penalty will be charged by the Exchange.

Cash settlement to the trading account usually happens on T+2 day if the exchange is unable to obtain the shares in the auction. The probability of cash settlement is lower for liquid stocks and higher for illiquid stocks.

Short delivery is an event when a trader fails to deliver the required number of shares on the settlement date. There are various reasons why this scenario might occur. One can be the loaned shares' inaccessibility or errors committed during the settlement process. Another reason could be when stocks hit the upper circuit, resulting in a lack of liquidity.

Trading in the stock market entails inherent market risks, which necessitates stringent regulations. One such restriction pertains to futures and options (F&O) trading known as the F&O ban.

Market cap is calculated by multiplying the total number of outstanding shares by the market price of each share.  For example, if a company has 5,00,000 shares trading at ₹500 each, its market cap is ₹25 crores (5,00,000 shares x ₹500).

Record date: The record date is when the company checks its records to identify the eligible shareholders for a corporate action. Shareholders holding the shares in their demat accounts on the record date are eligible for corporate actions such as entitlement of rights shares, bonus shares, stock splits, dividends, etc.

Ex-Date: The date on which a stock starts trading without the benefit of corporate action, i.e., ex-benefit, is known as the ex-date. The ex-date and the record date for all the corporate actions are on the same day since all the instruments are moved to the T+1 settlement cycle.  A stock will trade with the benefits of the corporate action or cum-benefit (i.e., cum-rights, cum-dividend, etc.) until the ex-date or the record date.

The date after which the company will not handle any transfer of shares requests until the benefits are transferred. Only shareholders marked in the company's register at the Book Closure Date or the Record Date would be entitled to receive these benefits.

A stock split is a corporate action where a company increases the number of shares by reducing the face value of the stock. Companies generally split shares to increase liquidity since the price of the stock reduces after the split. A split increases the number of shares by decreasing the face value, but the total value of the investment remains the same.

Consolidation of shares is a strategic move taken by companies to decrease the number of outstanding shares by merging them and raising the face value of each share. As a result of this process, the total number of outstanding shares decreases while the value of each individual share increases.

An Offer for Sale is a simpler method wherein promoters in public companies can sell their shares and reduce their holdings in a transparent manner through the bidding platform for the Exchange.

A rights issue is an invitation to existing shareholders to purchase additional new shares in the company. This type of issue gives existing shareholders securities called rights. With the rights, the shareholder can purchase new shares at a discount to the market price on a stated future date.
