Zerodha Account Opening

Invest without brokerage fees in Equity Delivery and Direct Mutual Funds. Pay a flat Rs 20 per trade for Intra-day and F&O. Open an instant account with Zerodha and start trading today.

You can short sell in Zerodha on an intraday basis in the Cash Equity segment. To place a sell order in Zerodha without holding stock in the Demat account, you need to place an order using MIS (Margin Intraday Square-off) product type.

You are required to square off your short position by buying back the stock on the same day by 3.20 pm. If you fail to do so, the system will trigger auto square-off and charge a penalty of Rs 50 per squared-off position.

There are no such restrictions in the F&O segment. You can take a short position in the derivatives segment and can square off the position later or hold till expiry as you desire.

Note: Zerodha does not allow STBT (Sell Today Buy Tomorrow).
