Equity trading refers to the buying and selling of equity shares of the company listed on Stock Exchange platform. These transactions involve high-risk and high return trade instruments. Along with returns, the owner of such equities is entitled to ownership rights in the company as well.

  • Ownership through the acquisition of equity shares is on the same foot as ownership otherwise
  • Liability, in case of dissolution or bankruptcy, is limited to the equities purchased.
  • Higher returns compared to other forms of investments.
  • Irrespective of whether interest is paid or not, dividends are compulsorily paid.
  • A higher rate of liquidity, that is equities can be easily converted into cash.
  • Propagates the concept of diversified investment.

The different types of orders that can be placed are as follows:

  1. Limit Order
  2. Market order
  3. Stop Loss Order
  4. Stop Loss Market Order
  5. Cover Order
  6. Spread Order
  1. Bracket order

Limit orders allow you to control the price at which you buy or sell a stock. For buy limit orders, it will be executed only at the limit price or lower, while for sell limit orders, the order will be carried out at the limit price or higher. This gives traders better control over the prices at which they buy and sell stocks.

A market order is an instruction to your broker to buy or sell stock shares, bonds, or other assets at the best available price in the current financial market. If the asset is a large-cap stock or a popular exchange-traded fund (ETF), there will be plenty of willing buyers and sellers, so you can complete the trade almost instantly at a cost close to the latest posted price.

A stop-loss order is an instruction to buy or sell stock once the price of that stock reaches a certain level. Stop-loss orders are designed to prevent investors from losing too much money on a security position. For example, setting a stop-loss at 10% below the price you paid for shares will prevent you from losing more than 10% of your investment.

A cover order is a special type of order that lets you take an intra-day position while protecting your investment against potential losses by placing two orders at the same time: a market or limit order and a stop loss order. If the trigger price is hit, the stop loss order gets executed as a market order, helping you limit your losses.

Spread order is an order that helps you make a strategy to minimize a loss on your investment. Sometimes, a simple stop loss is not effective as it does not allow the market to have its own swings. When you use spread orders, if the initial order makes a loss, you can make a profit.

A bracket order is a sophisticated intraday order that comes with a mandatory stop loss and target order. The ability to do so helps you limit your downside and lock in your profit/loss. Bracket Orders are offered in the Equity Cash, Equity F&O, Commodity F&O, and Currency F&O segments.

Derivatives trading is the purchase and sale of derivatives. Derivatives refer to instruments whose value is based on underlying assets and they tend to fluctuate based on market conditions.

A forward contract is an agreement between two parties to buy or sell an asset at a specified price on a future date. A forward contract can be used for hedging or for speculation, although its non-standardized nature makes it particularly well-suited for hedging.

Futures contracts are legal agreements to buy or sell commodities at a predetermined price in the future. A futures contract specifies the amount and quality of the underlying asset that must be provided and received before or on the contract’s expiration date.

An options contract is an arrangement between two parties to facilitate the potential purchase or sale of an underlying security at a predetermined price, called the strike price. Buying an option gives the right to the owner, but not the obligation, to buy an asset at a predetermined price during a certain time frame.

A strike price is the price of an option contract. A call option’s strike price is where the buyer of the option can buy the underlying stock at a set price. For a put option, the strike price is where the seller can sell the underlying stock at a set price.


‘In the money’ refers to options contracts that possess intrinsic value. An option that is ITM does not necessarily mean the trader is making a profit on the trade. In-the-money options contracts have higher premiums than other options that are not ITM.

The phrase “out of the money” refers to an option that only has extrinsic value. An OTM call option will have a strike price higher than the current price of the underlying asset. Alternatively, an OTM put option has a strike price lower than the current price of the underlying asset.

At the money (ATM) options have strike prices that are identical to the current market price of the underlying security. These options are most sensitive to changes in various risk factors, including time decay and changes to implied volatility or interest rates.

The expiration date is the last day on which an option or futures contract can be used. When you buy an option, the contract gives you the right, but not the obligation, to buy or sell an asset at a predetermined price known as the strike price. This right should be exercised on or before the expiration date.

Open interest is the total number of outstanding derivative contracts, such as options or futures that have not yet been settled for a particular asset. This number provides a more accurate picture of trading activity and whether money is flowing into or out of the market.

A futures and options contract can be traded for a maximum of 3 months out. The near month, the next month, and the far month are available, except for long dated options contracts.

All of the contracts are settled in cash on a daily basis and at their respective expiration or exercise dates. All OTM and ATM options of the nearest expiration date expire worthless on that day.

  • Increase market efficiency
  • Helps in providing access to unavailable assets or markets
  • Exposes the risk of hedging
  • Determination of price of the underlying asset-this means that a fixed price for the derivative will belong to the investor irrespective of the fluctuating price.

  • Easily accessible to every individual
  • It is the most liquid market of all existing markets.
  • Availability of the latest technology for identifying the most beneficial sale and purchase.
  • Forex brokers always provide educational information about the market before investing, to make sure that the investor knows what they are getting into.

Options Market: Financial contracts between a buyer and seller that provide the buyer with the right to purchase or sell a currency at a predetermined price, but not the obligation.


The margin required to trade in different currency pairs is calculated to include both the SPAN margin and exposure margin.

  • Exchange rate risk: If the exchange rate drops to lower than when purchased, it could result in a loss on investment.
  • Leverage risk: Leverage is to make sure that the loss on the investment is minimised. But this might not work if the tables turn in the market direction.
  • Liquidity risk: Since this market has a high liquidity factor, there could be an uneven balance between supply and demand. This might shoot up the possibility of the liquidity option being temporarily disabled.

Commodities trading refers to the trading of contracts based on prices of underlying commodities, varying from precious metals, agricultural products to industrial commodities.

  • The facility provided for leveraging is high, meaning there is extreme minimization, in case of loss on investment.
  • Protection is provided against inflation of prices.
  • Adds onto diversification of portfolio.

Commodities, from agricultural goods to metal, are a good way for investors to diversify portfolios, trade easily, and receive stable returns even in a volatile market. The four basic categories for commodity trading are metal, energy, agriculture, and livestock.

Futures Contracts: The trading of commodities through a legal agreement for the purchase or sale of a predetermined quantity of commodities at a fixed price on a specified date in the future. Sellers profit from a downtrend in the market, while investors can stand to earn a profit from price inflation.

Compound interest can turn a few rupees into a sizeable amount over time. It acts as a multiplier in your investment portfolio. A great thing is that you’ll reach a point where the money saved becomes greater than the original principal amount. All you need to do is start saving early and over time your money will grow.


For example, if you invest Rs 100 with 8% interest every year, then your principal amount is Rs 100 and the earnings, at the end of the year, are Rs 8 (8% of Rs 100). However, instead of spending it, if you choose to reinvest it, then your principal amount for the next year becomes Rs 108 (Rs 100 + Rs 8) and the earnings you get are Rs 8.64 (8% of Rs 108), which are Rs 0.64 more compared to the first year.



How Compound Interest works in Investments

Consider an example to understand how the power of compounding works: Ravi invested Rs 1,00,000 as a lump sum this year. He is going to earn an interest of 12% on this investment every year. Now let’s see how much interest Ravi earns over 10 years, if he takes his interest out each year, as compared to letting the principle of compounding work for him.


Scenario 1: Ravi keeps his earned interest aside       Scenario 2: Ravi reinvests his interest and lets compounding work

Year Principal amount SIMPLE Interest earned (@12%p.a.) Year Principal amount COMPOUND Interest earned (@12%p.a.)
1 1,00,000 12,000 1 1,00,000 12,000
2 1,00,000 12,000 2 1,12,000 13,440
3 1,00,000 12,000 3 1,25,440 15,052.8
4 1,00,000 12,000 4 1,40,492.8 16,859.1
5 1,00,000 12,000 5 1,57,351.9 18,882.2
6 1,00,000 12,000 6 1,76,234.1 21,148.1
7 1,00,000 12,000 7 1,97,382.1 23,685.9
8 1,00,000 12,000 8 2,21,462.7 26,528.2
9 1,00,000 12,000 9 2,48,038.2 29,711.6
10 1,00,000 12,000 10 2,77,802.7 33,276.9
Total interest earned          Rs 1,20,000 Total interest earned        Rs 2,10,584.8


Total value of investment  Rs 2,20,000


Total value of investment  Rs 3,10,584.8



You can see that by merely reinvesting the interest earned on his principal amount, Ravi manages to earn almost double the interest on his one-time investment as compared to him taking his interest out each year. This shows the power of compounding.

The way compounding works, the more you invest at a young age, the more your money works for you over time and the sooner you’ll achieve financial freedom. Hence, to invest wisely, it is important that you leverage the power of compounding and start saving & investing early.

The Systematic Investment Plan is a convenient method of investing in mutual funds. With a SIP, an investor contributes a fixed amount to a mutual fund scheme at regular intervals — usually once a week or once a month, and gets units at the prevailing NAV. This works on the principle of rupee-cost-averaging. Which basically means that you buy more units over time, ensuring you get better returns.

Eureka makes recommendations of SIPs in with Robo Advisory. Click on the link below to find out more.

Robo Advisory- Robo advisory platform in india | Robo advisory software india



These are the funds/schemes which invest in the securities of only those sectors or industries as specified in the offer documents.

The Net Asset Value (NAV) of a mutual fund is the total value of its investment in assets minus the total value of its liabilities, divided by the number of shares outstanding. NAV allows an investor to track the performance of a fund. The net asset value (NAV) is how much one share of the fund is worth. The calculation is important because it gives us an idea of the value of one share. An asset management company (AMC) that runs a mutual fund declares the net asset value (NAV) of its various schemes each business day. This also indicates the buying and redemption price of the invested units.


You may hold units in demat form; however, the default is physical or held with us in our cloud-based system.

Here are some things you should read carefully in the offer document —date of issue, minimum investment, investment objective, investment universe, investment policies, risk factors, past performance data, fees and expenses, educational qualifications and work experience of fund managers and tax benefits.

Mutual fund investments are one-time investments that can help you multiply your returns, especially in the long run. You don’t have to commit regular investments; you can just opt for a lump sum investment. Individuals can invest a significant amount in Mutual Funds. During market growth periods, the value of these investments can increase significantly because of the large initial investment.

  • Ideal for Long-term Tenure

A lump-sum investment is suitable for long-term investors. Individuals who want to invest for approximately 10 years or more can choose a lump-sum investment in a debt fund.

  • Convenience

Generally, lump sum mode is most convenient for individuals who are investing their surplus money. However, if the investment is done in SIP mode, they need to be careful that they can invest the same at regular intervals.

  • Invest for the Timing

When looking for higher returns from long-term investments, investors should choose to invest in a down market and in lump sums instead of systematic investment plans. If investors choose to invest in the market at its peak, they will end up losing money.

The period of time over which an investor stays invested in an investment option is called the investment horizon, and it determines the risk and income needs of the investor, as well as the securities he or she will buy. Determining the investment horizon is one of the main steps in creating a portfolio.

In case of winding up of a Mutual Fund, the unitholder is paid based on the prevailing NAV (after adjusting expenses) and is entitled to receive a report containing necessary details relating to winding up by the Mutual Fund.

Yes, gains on redemption of Mutual funds are subject to Capital Gain Tax depending on the duration the units held. STT at the applicable rate is charged on the redemption of equity-linked mutual fund schemes.

Exit load varies from scheme to scheme and is calculated based on the NAV of the scheme. It usually lies between 0.05% to 2% of the redemption value. Some funds do not charge exit load and are called ‘No Load Funds’.

While there is no penalty imposed by the AMC, the Bank will charge a fee for every SIP installment that remains unpaid. If you skip 3 installments the SIP will be terminated.

An ETF, or exchange traded fund, is a type of security that tracks an index, sector, commodity, or other asset but trades on an open market the same way a regular stock does. An ETF can be structured to track anything from the price of an individual commodity to a large and diverse collection of securities. An ETF can even be structured to track specific investment strategies.

  • Portfolio diversification
  • High on money savings
  • Can be traded throughout the day
  • Tax redemptions can be availed

Mutual funds and exchange-traded funds are structured differently. Mutual funds can have more complex structures that involve varying share classes and fees, while ETFs typically appeal to investors who want to track the market’s performance and invest in a single mutual fund.

Market risk- Since the returns are completely based on market factors, the impact of negative factors is quite high resulting in additional losses, if incurred.

Exposure risk- Merely because investing in ETFs diversified portfolios and opens up different market strategies, it is not advisable to go ahead with it without having professional knowledge about these investments.

Broken ETF risk- This is a situation where the asset diminishes in value and all investments made on it lose their value resulting in a loss on investment.

Liquidity Risk – All ETF’s are not liquid at all the times. Though there are mechanisms in place but a gap exists.

Index: Several securities in one go designed to replicate a specific index

Sector: Marketable investments in leading sectors such as IT, finance, pharma, etc.

Bond: Collection of tradeable bonds with different investment strategies

Equity: ETFs that focus on the shares of listed companies with high potential.

Debt: Trades made with securities of a fixed return value such as debentures.

Commodity: Gold ETF’s are very popular. SILVER ETF’s has been cleared by SEBI and expected to hit market any time now.

ETFs are available within the Equity Segment of EuTrade. However, SIPs are also available through FUND-of Fund option given by the AMC. This will be available in MYMF app.

Margin Trading funding refers to a scenario where the broker initially pays a small part of the price of securities and agrees to pay the rest on a future date. This is done in confidence with changing market factors. Margin Trading is trading with borrowed funds. It is essentially a leveraging mechanism which enables investors to take exposure in the market over and above what is possible with their own resources.

Broker undertakes to pay trade obligation on behalf of the client against the securities pledged by the client to the broker.

  • Increase equity cash delivery position by maintaining margin only. The margin can be in the form of stocks or cash.
  • Greater leverage
  • Longer holding period

One needs to undertake by signing and accepting the terms & conditions by the way of agreement with EUREKA to avail the Margin Trading Funding (MTF) facility. It ensures that client is completely aware of risk & rewards of Trading in it. For more details you can contact at 033-66280000 Extension – 121

In addition to placing an order, you must now make a pledge on the stocks that you have bought. In order to comply with the revised SEBI policy, even stocks bought in MTF must be pledged. Otherwise, they will be allocated to your normal cash-market account.

In addition to placing an order, you must now make a pledge on the stocks that you have bought. In order to comply with the revised SEBI policy, even stocks bought in MTF must be pledged. Otherwise, they will be allocated to your normal cash-market account.

Your stocks held in the MTM segment will reflect as fully paid if you accept the pledge. If you do not accept the pledge, purchases made in normal cash will be considered as long positions without sufficient funds. The shares will be transferred to your Client Unpaid Securities Account (CUSA) as per policy and will be squared off on T+2+4 t or when credit coverage issue arises or when the MtoM loss hits the stipulated level, whichever is earlier.

This can be better explained with an illustration. For example lets say you have the following:

  1. MTF cash collateral – Rs. 50,000
  2. MTF stock collateral (before haircut valuation) – Rs. 5,00,000
  3. MTF stock collateral (after haircut valuation ) – Rs. 4,25,000
  4. Value of stocks funded at cost – Rs. 3,00,000
  5. MTF ledger balance – Rs. -3,10,000 (debit)

In the above scenario, the formula for calculating the MTF uploaded balance in the trading system would be a+c+d+e. In our example, the amount would be Rs.4,65,000.

The stocks funded would be uploaded as positions in the trading platform with cost price, Hence the trading platform would deduct the appropriate margin for the positions at either Flat 50% of the purchase Value or VAR+4.5 ELR  or VAR + 6.5 ELR + whichever is higher depending upon the category of stocks (derivative or Non-derivative stock). Let’s assume in the above example that the margin on the funded stock of value Rs. 3,00,000 is Rs. 1,00,000.

The available MTF balance for further positions would be = 4,65,000 – 1,00,000 = 3,65,000

Required margin and leverages may vary for different stocks. See the details given below.

Category of Stock Initial margin and maintenance margin as set in Trading system
Group I stocks available for F&O Trading VaR + 4.5 times of ELM or 50% , whichever is higher
Group I stocks not available for F&O Trading VaR + 6.5 times of ELM or 50% , whichever is higher

Normal Trading Account allows clients to purchase shares and securities, ride them for a two-plus-five days, then sell them. Liquidation is mandatory on the 7th day. But under Margin Trading facility, clients can ride the same security beyond 7 days by meeting the required margin.

No, short selling is not allowed in Margin Trading Facility.

There is no separate margin trading brokerage that is levied. The usual brokerage charged for cash delivery, cash intraday, futures and options is applicable on margin trades also. There is no separate margin trading fees or margins trading charges imposed on the customer.

When a margin call is sent, clients must meet the shortfall with the appropriate capital within two days. If there is still a shortfall, Navia will liquidate/sell funded and collateral shares.

You need to send a special request to us mentioning the Exchange in which the beneficiary is to be parked as Collateral. We’ll transfer the beneficiary to that account, but we need you to sell the stocks in your normal account first. We’ll move equivalent amounts of stock into your MTF account.

In order to transfer position to MTF, you need to sell stock in Normal account and buy in MTF product. You can do intraday sell / purchase in the same exchange. Prior to this, you need to transfer enough collateral in MTF.

You can keep the debit under MTF as long as it is supported by sufficient collateral subject to the terms and conditions.

The differentiating factor is that, under manual trading, you must choose the type of order before placing your order every single time. But once you choose a specific preference and lock it in, it converts into automatic margin trading and your orders will be taken care of.


Once we receive the agreement and is found ok in all respect,It will take one working day to switch from manual to automatic Margin Trading Funding

There is no penalty is applicable if a sufficient margin is  maintainedbut 15% interest will be levied on M2M  debit calculated on daily basis and debited your ledger weekly.

If the invested stock / securities take a nosedive from purchase cost, there will be huge loss and also need to pay back margin loan you took out and plus interest.

Charges are applicable as per normal Transactions executed in exchanges which are containing in contract note. in addition to this there is an intereston marging funding @15% p.a.

No, margin trading funding is only applicable to the Equity segment.

An NRI can open a Demat account with a DP who is registered with either CSDL or NSDL. Eureka is a registered DP with both CSDL and NSDL.

The Securities Lending and Borrowing (SLB) system enables traders to borrow securities that have been sold short in order to settle their debts. The SLB system is overseen by the clearing corporation of a stock exchange and is designed to offer a safe and secure way for investors to lend out the securities that they have purchased. For securities lending and borrowing system, clearing corporations/clearing house of the stock exchange would be the nodal agency and would be registered as the “Approved Intermediaries” (AIs) under the Securities Lending Scheme, 1997.

Only securities in the F&O segment are eligible for SLB.

Under SLB, securities can be borrowed for a tenure of up to 12 months. The fixed settlement dates are the first Thursday of the respective month and the date is displayed on the SLB trading screen at the time of order entry.

The rate of interest for SLB is dependent on the stock’s value on that day and is generally calculated on a per month basis.


Shares are borrowed by traders for the purpose of short selling it in the market. When an investor has a negative view on the stock, he/she borrows it through SLBM and sells it and later buys them back when price falls.

Long term investors who own a large number of shares and are not planning to sell them in the near future lend their shares through SLB Scheme. This gives long-term investors an opportunity to earn additional income.

The features of SLBM scheme are as follows:

  • Automated screen based trading platform with online matching of trades based on price-time priority
  • Tenure of lending and borrowing available up to a period of 12 months
  • A facility for placing early recall request for the securities lent is provided to the lender
  • A facility for the borrower to make an early repayment of securities and further relend them


SEBI permits all categories of investors i.e. retail and institutional to participate in SLBM.

NSCCL acts as a central counterparty in the SLB Scheme providing financial settlement guarantee.

The settlement cycle for SLB transactions shall be on T+1 basis. The settlement of lending and borrowing transactions shall be independent of normal market settlement. The settlement of the lending and borrowing transactions shall be done on a gross basis at the level of the clients i.e. no netting of transactions at any level will be permitted.

  1. Can earn additional income, even from an idle portfolio
  2. An arbitrage opportunity is provided if there is a difference between the price in cash and the derivatives segment
  3. No instance of counterparty risk.

The Debt Market is the market where debt instruments are traded.

In simple words market where fixed income securities of various types and features are issued and traded.

A debt instrument is a fixed income asset that legally obligates the debtor to provide the lender interest and principal payment.

  • Apt tool for those with low-risk appetite
  • There is no deduction of tax for such instruments
  • High liquidity ratio

  • Stable return
  • Hedge against volatility
  • Lower fees
  • Higher liquidity than Fixed Deposit
  • Lower risk than equity

  • Bonds
  • Government securities
  • Promissory Notes
  • Treasury Bills

  • Corporates
  • Sovereign National Governments
  • Sovereign National Governments
  • Quasi-Government Entities
  • Supranational Entities


Bonds are loans in which the borrower owes the lender a set amount of money. The loan must be repaid with interest and the original principal at a set time in the future.


A government bond is a bond issued by a national government and backed by taxes. Corporate bonds are issued by corporations and backed by the company’s assets. While government bonds offer lower interest rates, corporate bonds are riskier investments but can yield higher returns.

Bonds can be a good investment for regular income and higher returns than traditional deposit accounts. They are less volatile than stocks, so investors get more stability. If the company has to liquidate, bondholders usually have priority over stockholders in a company’s capital structure and are more likely to receive payment. Also, payments on some bonds may be tax-free.

Investing in bonds involves taking a risk that the bond issuer will not be able to make promised payments and hence default. If inflation rises, the purchasing power of a bond’s coupon and principal will be reduced.

Interest rate and maturities are directly proportional to each other. The longer a bond’s maturity, the greater the risk of price fluctuations, and so the higher the interest rate.

Eureka distributes bonds such as tax-free bonds, non-convertible debentures (secured and unsecured) and perpetual bonds.


Coupon: This is the interest rate paid by the bond. In most cases, it won’t change after the bond is issued.

Yield: This is a measure of interest that takes into account the bond’s fluctuating changes in value. There are different ways to measure yield, but the simplest is the coupon of the bond divided by the current price.

Face value: This is the amount the bond is worth when it’s issued, also known as “par” value. Most bonds have a face value of Rs. 1000

Price: This is the amount the bond would currently cost on the secondary market. Several factors play into a bond’s current price, but one of the biggest is how favorable its coupon is compared with other similar bonds.

There are 2 main types of debt markets in India- Primary markets and Secondary markets

Fixed income securities are financial instruments where the return on such income is fixed and periodical, meaning, even if there is a fall in the face value of the instruments, the return on investment is fixed and will be received by the investor, periodically. Investing in these instruments would generate a guaranteed return with almost no risk of ‘low returns’

Major risk involved in debt market trading are:

  • Credit Risk
  • Risk of defaulting payment of a return on investment
  • Risk of fluctuating interest rates
  • Liquidity Risk


  • In primary markets, the borrower (companies issuing shares for the first time) goes in search of interested parties willing to invest in their company.
  • In the secondary market, lenders/investors go in search of suitable investment options/schemes that suit their need of returns, tenure, the risk involved, and so on.

By market factors, supply and demand, underlying assets, etc.
