New Feature: Order Slicing – Trade Above Freeze Quantity on Arihant Plus

Arihant Plus introduces order slicing feature

Placing an order above the freeze quantity limit just got easier with the Order Slicing feature on Arihant Plus. No need to place multiple orders anymore.

Never miss an opportunity with Order Slicing. We understand that exchange freeze limits can be inconvenient when you are placing large orders. To make your trading experience better, we introduced the Order Slicing feature on Arihant Plus.

When you place a big order that breaches the exchange-free quantity limit, your order will be rejected. You will then have to divide the order into multiple smaller orders manually as per the freeze limit. This is where Order Slicing comes to your rescue. Using order slicing, you just need to enter the desired quantity and execute one order. Our new and innovative order-slicing feature will split the orders into smaller slices for you, all within the limits. 

What is Order Slicing?

Order slicing feature automatically divides large F&O orders, placed above freeze quantities, into multiple smaller orders. This helps reduce your impact cost of execution giving you greater control over your trades. It’s a handy tool for managing large trades.

For instance, let’s say you want to buy 80 lots (or 4,000 quantities) of Nifty Futures. However, exchange only allows the user to place a maximum of 1800 quantities in one order, i.e. 36 lots. In a normal scenario, you will need to place 3 orders manually:

  • Order 1: 1800 Nifty futures (36 lots)
  • Order 2: 1800 Nifty Futures (36 lots)
  • Order 3: 400 Nifty Futures (8 lots)

With order slicing, you can buy or sell 4,000 quantities in one order. Since it is above the exchange freeze limit of 1800, the order slicing feature will be activated and our system will automatically split 4000 Nifty futures quantity into three orders and place them as three separate orders with the exchange. Voila, no more wasting time or losing the price due to manual placement!
