    It'll be interesting to see how this turns out. The "Brokers' contention" in the article does not seem very convincing. Sure the investors should lose only the margin they put up, but the rest has to be the responsibility of the broker. That's the risk of being a broker. If I were a customer...

    The quick and transparent summary of damage is refreshing to see. I did once consider using Zerodha but found that they offered nothing more than my broker at the time did. At that time they didn't have a well developed API either. Maybe worth a re-look. Anybody using their API to automate any...

    Ok. But that seems to exhibit the sheer laziness of all parties involved. How does anybody in ONGC/Oil India/Reliance/BPCL's treasury even justify using this contract to hedge their future output/purchases? This is the main commodity exchange in the country? Does it even have access to any crude...

    Please can an informed party please share their thoughts on this? Why does a contract on a commodity exchange in India reference the price of a physically settled commodity delivered to the middle of nowhere USA? How does this contract even hedge any party's commodity price risk in India? If it...

    Is this guy delusional? One has to be a little to climb the corporate ladder, but could this be a little too far gone?

    No worries. Nobody else has a clue either. We're all just expressing opinions based on the subset of information and biases we have.

    There are no bids for most FDs/NCDs, even those issued by "reputable" groups! These were considered safe investments. I think most are in for a shock when they realize there's no liquidity.

    Nifty 50 EOY 2020 poll I'm hoping for a unanimous result so we can all then do the opposite :) Mixed results are more difficult to act on.

    Any hypotheses on why Kotak Mah Bk 30/04 FUT is at almost 5% discount to spot? Even if there's a divi in 04/20 I don't think their divi is that high.

    Finally seeing some posts complaining about broker IT/server issues. We may be near a short term bottom :)

    Thanks, didn't know that since I've never used those order types. Was this only on Thurs/Fri or the entire week? Out of curiosity, what prevents somebody from breaking down the bracket order into constituent orders? Or closing the position at the eod for MIS? Perhaps you're right that the time...

    What a week! What surprised me is that there were no complaints/reports on here about IT/server issues at brokers. Mine was slower than usual but worked throughout the carnage/recovery on Thurs/Fri. Most traders must've just frozen watching the action - so no real load on the servers. What I'm...
