Why do F&O stocks enter a ban period? What does it mean?
- If the combined OI of a stock F&O contract crosses 95% of its MWPL, all F&O contracts of that stock are put under a ban period by the exchange.
- When stock F&O contracts are under a ban period, no fresh positions are allowed for any F&O contracts of that stock. Only exiting of existing positions is allowed.
- When OI falls below 80%, the ban is reversed.
* The ban is applicable only to stock F&O contracts, and not to index contracts such as NIFTY, BANKNIFTY * There are no restrictions on trading in the concerned stock in the cash segment
