- Limit Order - A limit order is an order to buy or sell a security at a specific price. A buy limit order can only be executed at the limit price or lower, and a sell limit order can only be executed at the limit price or higher. Eg. If the current market price of Idea Cellular is Rs.75 & you wish to Buy at Rs. 70 or Sell at Rs. 80, you have to place a Limit Order.
Steps to place a limit order: Trade -> Buy/Sell->Order Type -> Limit Order.
A limit order can be placed via Market Watch, After Market Order, Basket Order and Markets Live too.
- Market Order - A market order is an order to buy or sell a stock at the current market price. The advantage of a market order is you are almost always guaranteed your order will be executed.
- Stop Loss Limit Order - A stop loss limit order is an order to buy a security at no more (or sell at no less) than a specified limit price. This gives the trader some control over the price at which the trade is executed, but may prevent the order from being executed. A stop loss buy limit order can only be executed by the exchange at the limit price or lower. A stop loss sell limit order can only be executed at the limit price or higher. Eg. If you have short sold NTPC @ Rs.145 in expectation that the price will fall, in case of price increase, you can limit the loss by placing a Stop Loss Buy order. In the Buy Screen we can put the trigger price @ Rs.150 and Limit Price @ Rs.155. As soon as NTPC‘s last traded price rises above Rs. 150, a limit order for NTPC @ Rs. 155 will get activated.
To place Limit Order: Trade -> Buy/Sell ->Order Type ->Stop Loss Order.

- Stop Loss Market Order - A stop loss market order is an order to buy or sell a security at the current market price prevailing at the time the stop order is triggered. This type of stop loss order gives the trader no control over the price at which the trade will be executed. A sell stop market order is an order to sell at the best available price after the price goes below the stop price. A sell stop price is always below the current market price. A buy stop market order is typically used to limit a loss (or to protect an existing profit) on a short sale. A buy stop price is always above the current market price.
- Disclosed Quantity - The disclosed quantity attribute allows the client to hide the actual quantity that he wishes to buy or sell.

If SL (Stop Loss) is selected for the order Type, the Disclosed Quantity field cannot be used. Disclosed Quantity should not be less that 10% of the Order Quantity and at the same time should not be greater than or equal to the Order Quantity. Eg- If an order is placed to buy/sell 1000 shares with a disclosed quantity condition of 200 will mean that 200 is displayed to the market at a time. After this is traded, another 200 is automatically released and so on till the full order is executed.

Options on stock indexes are similar to exchange-traded funds (ETF's), the difference being that ETF's values change throughout the day whereas the value on stock index options change at the end of each trading day. Therefore, profit/loss on an index option is based on the market's closing price for the day, not on any price during the market's open hours. If an index option is exercised before the close of the market, the buyer of the option will in- or out-of-the-money for an additional amount equal to the difference between the closing price and the exercise price. If the market closes above the intra-day exercise price, then the option will accrue an additional loss, and if the market closes below the intra-day exercise price, the option will accrue an additional gain. For this reason, index options are typically closed out after the market has closed.
