@nithin is it for retail traders or institutions only ?

It means you can sell in cash market only in intraday.

You cannot carry on your shorts in the stocks but you can carry on your shorts in the future’s and it’s only available for stocks in the F&O segment.

IN US stock markets, they allow short and carry forward just like how you long and carry forward… I don’t know why they don’t allow this feature in India…
Provided shorting has to be squared off at EOD, this is dangerous to my capital. I may use less than 1% of my total funds for this kind of trading and its for fun only.
