Transmitting Large Orders in one single go is one of the most demanded requirements from the Algomojo active trader’s community, particularly in the Futures and Options segment.
What is Split Order?
Split Order Provides the facility to split the large orders into multiple orders automatically and the maximum size of the order is limited to the freeze quantity.
For Example, the current freeze quantity limit for Nifty is 1800 shares and for Banknifty is 1200 shares. If the trader wants to punch 5000 shares in Nifty options then one can enter the trading quantity and enable the split order mode before sending the order to the exchange. While transmitting the orders to the exchange Algomojo splits the order into multiple orders of size 1800, 1800, and 1400 shares respectively.
How many orders can be sent in one single shot?
The current limit is set to 25 orders. ie a maximum of 25×1800 = 45000 shares in Nifty and a maximum of 25×1200 = 30,000 shares in BankNifty can be transmitted in one single go.
