Policy of Limit Setting:



To pre- define limits for each terminal and monitor the same on a continuous basis.


Trading Terminals are allotted to Members by exchanges. These terminals enable members to place, modify and execute orders on behalf of clients. There may be instances where due to punching error unusual orders may be placed at high prices which might lead to execution of unrealistic orders or orders being executed at unrealistic prices. In cases where the order/price of such orders is high, it might lead to huge losses to broker. In order to avoid such a situation it is imperative that certain limits are prescribed for each terminal allotted to member broker
