What is a NRML Order in Trading?

NRML or the Normal Margin (Full Form of NRML) order is used for carry forward trades in the derivative segment and for a special product in Samco called “Cash Plus” in the Cash segments. For example if some body wishes to buy Nifty futures and sell in after a few days he can do so using the NRML product type. NRML trade can be converted in to an MIS order from the Position conversion window. Intraday trade in the MIS product type can also be converted into a NRML trade provided the required margin is available in the clients trading account.

NRML Margins

In the derivatives trade, the margins applicable would be the total margin i.e. SPAN + Exposure. The margin can be checked from the Span Calculator. In derivatives, no extra leverage is provided for trades using the NRML product. In contrast in the equity segment, the NRML product is used for providing leverage upto 4x on selected stocks. You can check the NRML order margins for the Equity Cash Segments on the Equity Delivery Leverage Calculator.
Note that the margin applicable while entering the order is only initial total margin and additional mark to market would be required to be paid if there is a loss in the position. If the clients trading account balances drop by 80%, the open positions would be squared off by the RMS system.
You should check the Samco margin policies and limits to check the margins available for trading different product types with Samco.

    Dear Sir ji,
    Please think of cash plus like facility for positional Nifty Future. Nifty is less volatile, hardly move gap up or down over 2-3%, so current 8% margin is on higher side. At least, you can give 3x leverage for Nifty BTST/STBT(only next day position less risk) positional trades, using NRML.
    Best Regards.

    Hi, just wanted to know, if I buy Future Currenty in NRML, and on the same day the price drops, and I hold the stock till the next day, will the unbooked PNL be deducted from my margin?

    1. Jimeet Modi

      Yes. Your the Mark to market on account of the price fluctuation gets debited (in case of loss) or credited (in case of profit) to your SAMCO Trading account ledger statement and has the effect of adjusting Trading margins.

    Please let me know what is maximum lot size per order that can be traded by placing orders under NRML ?


      Greetings! The Maximum Order Quantity (In Lots) varies with the derivative in question. Eg: For BankNifty, it is 62, meaning you can place an order for 2480 (62 * 40) quantities at a time. Similarly, for Nifty, it is 100, meaning you can place an order for 7500 (75*100) quantities at a time.
