What they are still narrowing it down ? Why are they doing this ?
I won’t be surprised even if they say that the freeze limit is 1 lot next time.

fii are selling, less liquidity in market this creates pressure, to make dii easily absorb pressure and not create knee jerk movement which will trigger algo

Mazak ban gaya hai ye…

For BN, wasn’t it always 1200??? correct me if im wrong but even earlier i wasnt allowed to trade more than 1200 qty (Options) in one order, right?

Yes for Bank Nifty earlier limit was 1200. Revision has been to quantity freeze limits of Nifty, highlighted in bold letters.

Nothing hurts me more than this 2nd revision of the maximum lots.

This Quantity limit SUCKS… :grimacing: :disappointed:Zerodha should bring in a function which allows us to order larger sizes in a single order… Basket order while placing multiple max quantity lots not at all sustainable. :pray:

can I exit position with single order if I have more than 1800 quantity ?

No, you can buy or sell only 1800 quantities in one order. For more, you will have to place another order. You can use the basket orders feature to easily place multiple orders. More here.
