BSE BANKEX options expiry on fridays? EDIT: now on MONDAYs

BSE bank index bankex is planning to do expiries on fridays !

Since its more or less similar to BankNifty - we are in for a treat !

how is the liquidity though - has anyone traded here??

which broker is allowing to trade in bse option - any idea

i couldn’t find that info yet.

@ShubhS9 will zerodha allow this from May 2023?

Hi @viswaram, currently BSE F&O are not available due to low volumes. We’re however working on making these available.

@ShubhS9 , if you blocked for the trade then how the volumes will pick . you are the largest broker . if you release then only people will trade and get benefit you and us , dont look the liquidity if largest broker are blocked , just allow to trade then see the liquidity


+1 Until unless zerodha allows will not see liquidity.

@ShubhS9 any difficulty to enable this?

HI @ShubhS9, I tried to get in touch with the BSE customer care desk. Unfortunately did not get any information pertaining to this subject.

Do you know who trades on BANKEX & SENSEX FnO? Are only the institutions trading now??

I think once these big players like institutions, Corporates start trading n that and create a strategy for themselves. Then only it will be allowed for retail clients.
Same thing s happening n MIDCPNIFTY also. Last 2 Wednesday expiries were awesome.
Whatever n future. Tue to fridays will have an expiry contracts everyday. Hope NSE splits nifty or banknifty expiry to monday. Then it will be a big bonanza


Does it have option chain?
If yes. How to enter the symbol n kite app?

Not yet available


Does anyone know which broker has provided access for SENSEX and BANKEX options trading?

I remember reading in one of the posts where zerodha said they would enable bse Fno from 15th of May. So didn’t happen ??

Someone please confirm by when it will be available in Zerodha. Seems a good opportunity.

Bankex moving to mondays is quite a good move as the weakest among NSE’s expiring indices is MidCPSelect.

But a long way to go before liquidity picks up in Bankex…
