Cover Order in Edelweiss helps you get more leverage in the equity and futures segments in intraday trades. It helps you to gain high returns while limiting your losses by setting a stop-loss trigger price.

The Cover Order feature is available only on select stocks and Future contracts. Trades with Cover Orders get a higher margin due to limited risk involved. A Cover Order lets you place trades up to 80 times the available limits in your trading account.

While taking an intraday position, you need to specify the trigger price and the limit price. If the stock price crosses the trigger price a sell order is placed which gets executed when the limit price is touched. This way you limit the extent of losses in an intraday trade in case the price moves downwards.
