Is Copy trades legal?

Hello Team, @nithin

Is copy others trades legal in India?

Reason - My friend has margin issue on his account and my collateral is unused so can I copy his trades instead of giving access of my account. Is this legal and does kite connect api has this facility to automate this?

It’s not. Nithin had answered it here:

how do you get to see your friend’s trades?


No, that’s not what I meant. Will your friend show you the trades as he takes it? coz timing is everything.

right! time slippage would be there for sure.
