Order Type
  • Market Order

    A market order is a buy or sell order to be executed immediately at current market prices.

  • Limit Order

    A limit order is a buy or sell order placed to execute a transaction only at a specified price.

  • Stop Order

    It is a market order to buy or sell a certain quantity when a specified price (the stop price) is reached, either above (on a buy) or below (on a sell) the price that prevailed when the order was given.

  • Stop Limit Order

    An order to buy or sell a certain quantity at a specified price or better, but only after a specified price has been reached. A stop-limit order is essentially a combination of a stop order and a limit order.

  • Day Validity

    An order with a Day validity remains valid until the end of the Trading Day during which it has been entered.

  • GTD (Good-Till-Date) Validity

    A GTD order remains valid until the close of business on the validity date that is specified when the order is entered.

  • GTC (Good-Till-Cancelled) Validity

    A Good Till Cancelled order remains active until the broker decides to cancel it or the order is fully executed or until the expiry of the respective contract in which it is entered.

  • IOC (Immediate or Cancel) Validity

    An order combined with the IOC validity is immediately executed for all possible quantity on the opposite side and the remaining quantity if any, will be automatically cancelled by the system.

ICEX follows VaR (Value at Risk) methodology for initial margin calculation. The Initial Margin requirement shall be based on a worst case loss of a portfolio of an individual client across various scenarios of price changes. The various scenarios of price changes would be so computed so as to cover a 99% VaR over a one day horizon. Daily volatility of the futures prices is considered for the computation of VaR. Volatility is estimated using Exponentially Weighted Moving Average (EWMA) Method. The standard deviation shall be set as the volatility estimate at the beginning.

In addition to initial margin, additional margin, regulatory margin and long margin / short margin may be levied and changed time-to-time under the guidelines of SEBI. Levy of margins shall be intimated to the members through the circulars. Tender period and delivery period margin shall also be applicable during tender period and delivery period of the contracts.

All margins shall be collected upfront from the members. Margins shall be computed on gross positions of the clients i.e. no netting on margins for opposite positions across clients.
