No consideration to trade should be made without thoroughly understanding and reviewing the risks involved in such trading. If you are unsure, you must seek professional advice on the same.
In considering whether to trade or authorize someone to trade for you, you should be aware of or must get acquainted with the following:-
1. BASIC RISKS INVOVLED IN TRADING ON THE STOCK EXCHANGE (EQUITY AND OTHER INSTRUMENTS)
1.1 Risk of Higher Volatility:
Volatility refers to the dynamic changes in price that securities undergo when trading activity continues on the Stock Exchange. Generally, higher the volatility of a security/contract, greater is its price swings. There may be normally greater volatility in thinly traded securities /contracts than in active securities /contracts. As a result of volatility, your order may only be partially executed or not executed at all, or the price at which your order got executed may be substantially different from the last traded price or change substantially thereafter, resulting in notional or real losses.
1.2 Risk of Lower Liquidity:
Liquidity refers to the ability of market participants to buy and/or sell securities / contracts expeditiously at a competitive price and with minimal price difference. Generally, it is assumed that more the numbers of orders available in a market, greater is the liquidity. Liquidity is important because with greater liquidity, it is easier for investors to buy and/or sell securities / contracts swiftly and with minimal price difference, and as a result, investors are more likely to pay or receive a competitive price for securities / contracts purchased or sold. There may be a risk of lower liquidity in some securities / contracts as compared to active securities / contracts . As a result, your order may only be partially executed or may be executed with relatively greater price difference or may not be executed at all.
1.2.1 Buying/selling without intention of giving and/or taking delivery of a security, as part of a day trading strategy, may also result into losses because in such a situation, stocks may have to be sold/purchased at a low/high prices, compared to the expected price levels, so as not to have any obligation to deliver/receive a security.
1.3 Risk of Wider Spreads:
Spread refers to the difference in best buy price and best sell price. It represents the differential between the price of buying a security and immediately selling it or vice versa. Lower liquidity and higher volatility may result in wider than normal spreads for less liquid or illiquid securities / contracts. This in turn will hamper better price formation.
1.4 Risk-reducing orders:
Most Exchanges have a facility for investors to place “limit orders”, “stop loss orders” etc. The placing of such orders (e.g., “stop loss” orders, or “limit” orders) which are intended to limit losses to certain amounts may not be effective many a time because rapid movement in market conditions may make it impossible to execute such orders.
1.4.1 A “market” order will be executed promptly, subject to availability of orders on
opposite side, without regard to price and that, while the customer may receive a prompt execution of a “market” order, the execution may be at available prices of outstanding orders, which satisfy the order quantity, on price time priority. It may be understood that these prices may be significantly different from the last traded price or the best price in that security.
1.4.2 A “limit” order will be executed only at the “limit” price specified for the order or a better price. However, while the customer receives price protection, there is a possibility that the order may not be executed at all.
1.4.3 A stop loss order is generally placed “away” from the current price of a stock / contract, and such order gets activated if and when the stock / contract reaches, or trades through, the stop price. Sell stop orders are entered ordinarily below the current price, and buy stop orders are entered ordinarily above the current price. When the stock reaches the pre-determined price, or trades through such price, the stop loss order converts to a market/limit order and is executed at the limit or better. There is no assurance therefore that the limit order will be executable since a stock / contract might penetrate the pre-determined price, in which case, the risk of such order not getting executed arises, just as with a regular limit order.
1.5 Risk of News Announcements:
Issuers make news announcements that may impact the price of the securities / contracts. These announcements may occur during trading, and when combined with lower liquidity and higher volatility, may suddenly cause an unexpected positive or negative movement in the price of the security / contract.
1.6 Risk of Rumours:
Rumours about companies at times float in the market through word of mouth, newspapers, websites or news agencies, etc. The investors should be wary of and should desist from acting on rumours.
1.7 System Risk:
High volume trading will frequently occur at the market opening and before market close. Such high volumes may also occur at any point in the day. These may cause delays in order execution or confirmation.

Terms & Conditions pertaining to trading in Options:
The Client agrees that Sumedha Fiscal Services Ltd may require the Client to provide such margin (in such form and manner as acceptable to Sumedha Fiscal Services Ltd) depending on the Stock and market volatility on different contracts as it deems fit in its sole discretion as necessary for Risk mitigation. This margin requirement may be more than the margin prescribed by the Stock Exchange. The margin may be taken in cash or in form of securities as may be acceptable to Sumedha Fiscal Services Ltd. In event the Client offers securities as margin to Sumedha Fiscal Services Ltd., then the Terms and conditions as hereunder shall apply.
The Client agrees that Sumedha Fiscal Services Ltd. may, in its sole discretion, change the margin requirement on Transactions where the Client has taken or proposes to take a position, depending on its own risk mitigation measures and without intimating or consulting the Client.
In case of upward revision of the margin requirement, the Client agrees to allocate additional margin (in form of cash or securities as may be acceptable to Sumedha Fiscal Services Ltd.) to continue with open position taken in connection with the Transaction. The Client agrees that Sumedha Fiscal Services Ltd. shall have the discretion to select stocks that will be enabled for trading in the Options.
In-the-Money or Out-of-Money would be considered while calculating the Margin requirement on Sell orders. In case of In-the-Money, the seller of the option would be required to bring in additional Margin based on the difference between Current market price (CMP) and the Strike price in case of Call, and difference between Strike price and the CMP in case of Put. In case of Out of money, the seller of the Option may be given the benefit and may be permitted to provide lesser Margin depending upon the difference between Strike price and the CMP in case of Call and difference between CMP and the Strike price in case of Put. The Margin so arrived at shall be compared with the Short Option Margin Percentage (SOMC) and the higher of the two percentages shall be charged.
The Client agrees that Sumedha Fiscal Services Ltd. may, in its sole discretion, require the Client to provide additional / further margin depending upon the Client’s positions, in form and manner acceptable to Sumedha Fiscal Services Ltd. If the limit is not sufficient to meet the demand for additional Margin, Sumedha Fiscal Services Ltd. may close out any or all open positions. Sumedha Fiscal Services Ltd. shall not be required to make a margin call or otherwise inform the Client that the margin as furnished by the Client has fallen below the required level and it shall be the responsibility of the Client to regularly monitor and review the Margin availability and furnish the additional Margin to Sumedha Fiscal Services Ltd. Sumedha Fiscal Services Ltd. has the right to close out the open position at any time (without consulting or notifying the Client) in case the Client does not satisfy the additional margin requirements. The Client undertakes to maintain sufficient free limit to provide for additional margin as and when required by Sumedha Fiscal Services Ltd.
Exercise: In case of an American option, the Client can place an exercise request up to the Open (Call/Put) buy position anytime except on the last date of the contract. The Client may place an exercise request for less than the open positions in market lots. The exercise request can be placed only at specified time intervals when the exercise market is open. Exercise request cannot be placed on the last day of the Contract. On the Expiry day of the Contract, the exchange would automatically exercise the (Call/Put) Buy position in case the Position is In-the-Money. In case of exercise request placed by the Client or exercised by the Stock Exchange, the exercise request is accepted only if the Position is In-the-Money. The exercised request is reduced from the open positions in the Marginable sell order position. Hence the sell order position would be subject to Margin requirement, if the quantity of sell order exceeds the difference between the buy position and the exercise request quantity. If the Exercise Request is not accepted by the exchange at the end of the day, the Exercise Request is marked as rejected at the end of the day, so that the Client can place a fresh Exercise Request the next day.
Assignment: In case the Client has a Sell position, the Contract may be assigned to the Client and in such an event the Client undertakes to Buy the Underlying in case of Put and sell the Underlying in case of Call. However, if the Contracts are settled in cash, the Client would have to pay or receive the cash in case of an assignment. The Client understands that there can be part Assignment as may be decided by the Stock Exchange in its sole discretion.
Mark-to-Market process: In case of Short Positions taken by the Client i.e. the Client is the Seller of a Call or Put, Mark to Market process (MTM) will be run on a regular basis. As soon as the Client places an order, which results in a position, a Trigger price would be indicated to the Client. Whenever the Underlying price of the Shares goes above the Trigger Price in case of Call, the Contract would be in the MTM loop. In such event, additional Margin shall be re-calculated based on the increase in price and if the Limit is found to be insufficient or the Client fails to make available the additional Margin, then the orders in the same contract shall be cancelled. Sumedha Fiscal Services Ltd. may, at its sole discretion, square off the position taken by the Client.
As soon as the Client places a Sell Put order, which results in a position, a Trigger price would be indicated to the Client. Whenever the Underlying price of the shares goes below the Trigger price in case of Sell Put, the Contract would be in the MTM loop. In such event, additional Margin shall be re-calculated based on the decrease in price and if the Limit is found to be insufficient or the Client fails to make available the additional Margin, then the orders in the same contract shall be cancelled. Sumedha Fiscal Services Ltd. may, at its sole discretion, square off the position taken by the Client.
If the Client does not square off the transaction till the last day of the contract, the position will be marked as closed off and the same cannot be exercised or assigned.
Brokerage on Options Transactions shall be calculated as a percentage of the Strike price plus the premium of the order value.
Terms & Conditions pertaining to trading in Futures:
The Client agrees that the Client’s positions are continuously monitored and the Client agrees to provide Margin (including additional Margin) as may be determined by Sumedha Fiscal Services Ltd. from time to time. If the available Limit is not sufficient to meet the demand for additional Margin, Sumedha Fiscal Services Ltd. may close out the open position taken by the Client and the Client shall be solely responsible for any losses arising out on account of the same. Sumedha Fiscal Services Ltd. shall not be liable for making a demand for Margin or otherwise inform the Client that the Margin has fallen below the required level and it shall be the responsibility of the Client to regularly monitor and review the Margin availability and furnish the additional Margin to Sumedha Fiscal Services Ltd. Sumedha Fiscal Services Ltd. reserves the right to close out the open position at any time (without consulting the Client) in case the Client does not satisfy the additional Margin requirements. The Client shall maintain sufficient Limit to provide Margin as and when required by Sumedha Fiscal Services Ltd.
The Client agrees that Sumedha Fiscal Services Ltd. shall have the discretion to select contracts that will be enabled for trading in Futures and the individual margin percentage, both Minimum margin and Initial margin, in the futures segment. The Margin may be taken in cash or in form of securities as may be acceptable to Sumedha Fiscal Services Ltd. In event the Client offers securities as margin, then the Terms and conditions as hereunder shall apply.
The Client agrees that in case of an order in Futures, initially, Margin shall be blocked at the applicable Margin requirement of the order value. For market orders, margin shall be blocked considering the order price as the last traded price of the contract. On execution of the order, the same shall be suitably adjusted as per the actual execution price of the market order.
Margin requirement may be changed by Sumedha Fiscal Services Ltd. during the life of the contract. If due to the increased volatility in the prices, the margin requirement may be increased and in such event the Client undertakes to allocate additional funds/securities to continue with open position. If such Margin requirement is not met, the contract may come in MTM loop and may be squared off by Sumedha Fiscal Services Ltd. due to insufficient Margin. The Client undertakes to maintain sufficient Limit to safeguard the open position from being squared off or pending orders cancelled.
The Client agrees that Margin is blocked only on those new future orders, which may result into increased risk exposure. For calculating the margin at order level, values of all buy orders and sell orders (in the same underlying-group as may be determined by Sumedha Fiscal Services Ltd.) is arrived at. Margin is levied on the higher of two i.e. if buy order value is higher than sell order value, only buy orders will require Margin being furnished and vice versa.
Spread position: Spread position would attract Spread Initial Margin Percentage (SIM) and Spread Minimum Margin Percentage (SMM) in connection with margin calculation instead of Initial Margin Percentage and Minimum Margin Percentage. Spread position value is calculated by multiplying the weighted average price of position in far month contract and spread position quantity. Spread margin percentage is then applied to spread position value to arrive at spread margin. Sumedha Fiscal Services Ltd. shall in its sole discretion, determine the contracts which can form spread positions against each other.
Margin is blocked only on orders that result in an increased Risk exposure. Margin may not be recovered from an order, which is cover in nature. If a Position of opposite nature is present then the Order is reduced by the opposite position, if the opposite position is greater than the order, then the order may not require Margin. However, Sumedha Fiscal Services Ltd. shall have the sole discretion to determine the Margin Requirement.
Available margin: Available margin is calculated by deducting MTM loss from Margin blocked with respect to a position. When the available margin is below the Minimum Margin required, Margin required on executed position is re-calculated by taking Current Market Price (CMP) of respective position and Initial Margin Percentage and spread margin Percentage, as the case may be. Available Margin is then compared with the required Margin and amount for additional Margin requirement is arrived at.
When the Intra-day MTM process is run and if it is observed that the available Margin has fallen below the Minimum Margin required, Sumedha Fiscal Services Ltd. would block additional Margin required out of the Buying power available. In case Buying power is not sufficient to meet the additional Margin requirements then Sumedha Fiscal Services Ltd. may place a square off order at market rate to close the position. However, before placing the square off order all pending futures orders in that underlying-group (contracts having same underlying and recognized in the same group for spread recognition at the discretion of Sumedha Fiscal Services Ltd.) may be cancelled by Sumedha Fiscal Services Ltd.
The Client hereby undertakes to allocate additional Margin, suo moto, on any open position, to make available sufficient Margin against the same in order to avoid square off by Sumedha Fiscal Services Ltd. due to insufficient Margin.
The Client agrees that in case of insufficient Buying power, to safeguard its interest Sumedha Fiscal Services Ltd. may block and debit funds lying in Client’s Trading Account and /or debit securities lying in Client’s demat account integrated with the Account towards dues recoverable from the client.
In case of profit on a future position or where the available Margin is in excess of the Margin required, the Margin in excess of required Margin (in profitable position) may be released when Sumedha Fiscal Services Ltd. runs its End of Day (EOD) MTM process or when the Client squares off the open position completely before EOD.
Every day the settlement of open futures position will take place at the closing price of the day. In case of profit at EOD MTM Process run, Buying power shall be increased by the amount of profit and in case of loss; Buying power shall be reduced to that extent. Next day the position would be carried forward at the previous trading day closing price at which last EOD MTM Process was run. Closing price for all the contracts is provided by the exchange at the end of the day. Margin is re-calculated at the closing price at which EOD MTM process is run and differential Margin is blocked or released, as the case may be. For Margin calculation, the specified Initial Margin Percentage and specified spread margin Percentage is taken into consideration.
Due to daily MTM and pay-in/pay-out, Buying power may become lesser over a period of time and because of the same, open position may fall in MTM loop and may get squared off unless the Client provides fresh Buying power. Pay-in amount shall be debited from the Client’s Trading account (first from the amount allocated for the Transactions and then from the free unallocated balance) and pay-out amount shall be credited to the Client’s Trading Account.
All MTM losses will be recovered by Sumedha Fiscal Services Ltd. on a daily basis by debiting the clients trading account.
Split of Contract: In case of contracts which fall under Spread Position, four (4) calendar days (or such other number of days as determined by Sumedha Fiscal Services Ltd. from time to time) prior to the expiry of a contract, open position of that contract would be taken out of Spread Position and subjected to normal Initial Margin requirement. Position in such separated contracts would be shown separately. Buying power would be reduced appropriately to apply Initial Margin on near month contract. If Buying power is insufficient for application towards the Initial Margin requirement, the Margin available in a group from which the near month contract was moved will also be utilized to make good the short fall. After moving the near month contract from the existing group to separate group, Margin requirement for the existing group will be re-calculated and Buying power would be reduced appropriately.
In case the contract remains open till the contract expires, Sumedha Fiscal Services Ltd. as well as the Exchange would expire the position on the last day of contract after running EOD MTM Process and the position would be closed at the closing price of the spot (equity) market. Margin blocked on such expired position will also be released and the Buying power would be appropriately increased after adjusting profit/loss on close out.
Brokerage shall be calculated as a percentage of the order value.
The Client agrees that Sumedha Fiscal Services Ltd. may at its sole discretion, change the margin requirement on the Transactions, in which the Client has taken or proposes to take positions. In case of upward revision of the margin requirement, the Client agrees to allocate additional funds/securities as margin to continue with open positions taken in connection with the Transactions.

Acquire Now Sell Tomorrow (ANST)
'Acquire now sell tomorrow' hereinafter referred to as "ANST", is a facility offered by Sumedha Fiscal Services Limited. (hereinafter referred to as Sumedha ) which allows the Client to sell the securities which the Client had purchased through Sumedha , before the same are credited to the Client’s demat account, and hence the Client need not wait to sell the securities till the actual credit of the purchased securities into his demat account.
ANST facility is offered to the Resident individual Indian clients of Sumedha . Notwithstanding the above, Sumedha reserves the right to refuse this facility to any Client or group of Clients at its sole discretion and without assigning any reason.
Sumedha shall decide upon the list of securities, which shall be eligible for this facility. This list would be subject to change at the sole discretion of Sumedha from time to time. Sumedha may also at its sole discretion decide to withdraw a particular security from the list without notice to the clients and without assigning any reasons whatsoever. Currently all S&P, CNX NIFTY and CNX NIFTY JUNIOR scrips are available under ANST facility.
Under ANST facility the quantity of securities available for sale shall be only such percentage of the quantity of securities bought by the Client, as may be permitted by Sumedha from time to time. Sumedha may at its sole discretion vary the percentage, if it deems fit, without notice to the clients and without assigning any reasons whatsoever and the Client will at all times be required to abide by such decision. The Client shall be permitted to sell the previously bought security under ANST within such number of days as prescribed by Sumedha Fiscal Services Ltd. from time to time. Securities bought on a particular day (i.e. day T) can be sold by the Client within the period commencing on T+1 day and ending on T + 2 day (or by an earlier day if so specified by Sumedha ). The Client will not be allowed to sell the securities on T + 3 day under this facility. The purchase and sale transactions of the securities under the ANST facility will be on the same Exchange i.e. securities purchased from NSE, wil be allowed to be sold only on the NSE, and not on the BSE. However in case of securities under no-delivery period, the T+1 day will start from the day on which the scrip comes out of no delivery.
Securities purchased by the Client which are pending to be credited to the client’s demat account can be viewed by the Client after logging in for trading on the ‘Security Projections’ page of the Website and the Client may place order to sell the eligible securities upto the permitted percentage under the ANST facility by clicking on the ANST Sell Hyperlink. The client can see the maximum number of shares which can be sold under ANST under the column Maximum Sell Quantity Permitted against the corresponding settlement number. This is being calculated by Sumedha after considering the client’s buy position in the corresponding settlement and also on Sumedha ’s internal risk profile of that particular stock. The rest of the details which are required to be filled up are similar to that of a normal sell order. On the placement of a ANST sell order, the order quantity is added to the existing blocked quantity, if any, and is shown as the blocked quantity in the security projections. The available quantity now gets reduced by the blocked quantity. The client can then place further ANST order/normal sell order for the available quantity. The brokerage rates will be the same as that are applicable for delivery trades.
Pursuant to the Client availing of this facility the securities bought by the client in one settlement shall be retained either partly or fully by Sumedha in its demat account for the purpose of meeting the pay in obligation of the client towards the securities sold by the client in the subsequent settlement(s).
In case there is a short delivery from the Exchange for the earlier buy transaction, then the client will also be giving short delivery for his sell transaction. The Exchange would either give delivery of shares bought earlier through market auction or shall closeout the buy transactions as per the Exchange Regulations. However, this would not help the client in meeting his sale delivery obligation already committed by him as even if he receives the shares bought earlier through auction settlement, by that time the securities pay-in date for his sell transaction would be over. In such case, the client will have to face auction proceedings against his sale transaction and will have to bear the auction losses, auction penalties, cost of funding and any other incidental charges etc. All costs and consequences of any auction arising out of such ANST sell transactions shall be fully borne by the client and Sumedha would not be held responsible for any such short delivery received by the client and the consequential impact thereof.
In case of short delivery, Sumedha will reduce the trading buying power of the client to the extent of the likely auction amount. On receiving the actual auction amount from the Exchange the buying power will be adjusted to reflect the same and the auction amount will be recovered from the customer. In order to recover any pending dues from the client pursuant to the client availing of the ANST facility, Sumedha may transfer any funds/securities pertaining to the client or may sell the client’s securities.
The use of this facility is entirely voluntary and the facility has to be used in accordance with the applicable rules/ regulations/ guidelines specified by the Securities and Exchange Board of India and other competent authorities from time to time. Sumedha disclaims all liability for any loss caused to the Client out of the purchase or sale of securities through use of this facility.
This facility is offered by Sumedha in accordance with the rules/regulations/ guidelines specified by the Securities and Exchange Board of India and other competent authorities from time to time pertaining to secondary market for securities. Sumedha reserves the rights to change these terms and conditions at any time in accordance with the regulations specified.
These Terms and Conditions will be applicable for all the ANST trades executed by the client through Sumedha .
