Muhurat Trading Session - Samvat 2078 [4th November, 2021]

A Muhurat trading session is conducted by exchanges every year on account of Diwali - Lakshmi Puja.

Before the advent of electronic trading in the stock markets, trading would only take place in the designated trading halls of stock exchanges. These trading halls were only open to stockbrokers and their registered assistants. An investor would place orders with the stockbroker or the broker’s assistants who would then go to the trading hall to execute the transaction.

On the Muhurat trading day, however, the restrictions on entering the trading hall would be eased up. A stockbroker’s clients, friends, and family would be able to witness the open-outcry trading first-hand in the trading halls.

Buying stocks in the Muhurat session to mark activity is considered auspicious. The activity is said to welcome luck for the next year. Check this post on Tradingqna from 2018 to know more about the significance of Muhurat trading.

The Muhurat trading session will be conducted on Thursday, November 4, 2021.

In line with our tradition over the last 11 years, brokerage charges for all trades during the Muhurat trading session will be reversed. Zero brokerage on all Intraday, F&O, and commodity trades.

5th November is trading holiday. 8th November, trading times will be as usual.

Liquidity volume is generated by the institutions .

Do instititions trade in that 1 hour of muhurat session ?

How is the spread difference between bid and ask price for the banknifty nifty options ?

That’s not always true.

so , the weekly expiry will fall on : 4th (thursday) or 3rd (wednesday) ?

Weekly expiry is on 3rd November, Wednesday.

There will be enough liquidity for strikes which are within 2 percent from spot.
