Thanks for replying. I am still a little confused. I think an example would explain the terms. If I were to buy 100 shares of XYZ, then how would albm play its role?

What is the duration for eosess and eostlm?

I hope these qestions don't sound foolish, I've not even begun trading yet. I wasn't able to search for them google, usually the link would point to traderji itself, and the threads were mostly non-informative.

The first leg gets over at 1PM? So the legs only apply to day trading?

1)ALBM is when ur doing short selling. I dont think it would be valid for a delivery

2)eosess depends upon which sessios ur trading in....there is also post session trading that happens. EOSTLM is not there any more.there "end of day"

Leg i have not herd of!!!!!!!!!

Code:

As far as i think when u open a position in Futures, u long( or short) a contract;this is first leg.
when u cover your outstanding position by squaring up ie sell(or buy in case u have shorted the contract earlier), this is second leg.
