How to sell some quantity from holdings

How to sell partial quantities from the position?
Suppose i trade for long position with 100 quantity, my first target achieved so i wish to sell 50% i.e. 50 quantity and wish to continue for second target with rest 50 quantity only. How would i achieve it ?

Watch Zerodha videos on Youtube on their channel

Can you be specific which video are you talking about ?

Go to “Holding”-> Hover over the position-> Click “Options” → Exit-> The order screen will pop up → Change the quantity from 100 to 50 and you’re done. This way, you would sell 50 and the remaining 50 will stay in the Holding.

Thanks Neha,
This also works in MIS/BO/CO ???

Intraday orders like MIS will create a new short position instead of selling existing shares from Holdings. Therefore, keep the order type “CNC”.

MIS yes, but no partial exits in BO and CO.
