Today we will discuss Execution Range and its effect on your option trading. Currently, option trading has been contributing up to 80% of total exchange volume in NSE. But the liquidity is limited to present month contracts. With low trading activity in most contracts, there is a higher probability of higher impact cost.
Impact cost is the difference between ordered price and executed price.
To save traders from higher impact cost, the exchange has prescribed execution range for option contracts. Now let us see how it protects the interest of traders.

It refers to a range in which you can place orders for the various option contracts. Order placed beyond this range will be rejected.
