  1. CNC into MIS - If you want to free some cash for trading. But, then your MIS position will be squared off at 3:20 if you don’t exit by that time.

Hello Trader,

The EXIT POSITION option on your KITE , simply opens up a new window to place a BUY / SELL order and close your open positions. A shortcut key to an order placing window.

The CONVERT POSITION option on your KITE , converts your holding position from MIS to CNC and vice-versa.

( You have initially purchased 10x shares in the morning using MIS, planning to sell it later during the day, BUT later you decide to hold the shares till tomorrow.
Now, if you do not convert the shares from MIS to CNC before 3:20 the broker will automatically close your position.
In a situation like this you can use the CONVERT POSITION option on your KITE )

Futhermore, It is not necessary to exit your current open position using this option, you can manually place a BUY / SELL order and bring down your net open quantity to zero.

Hope this helps.

Hey @deekshith24

When you sell shares from your holdings, the shares will be removed from your holdings (holding quantity will reduce) and will reflect as a CNC short in the positions tab. Check out this article on our support portal for more info.

This feature is enabled to allow traders to make intra day trades using the stocks they hold.
