Example:

  • Theme: Muthoot Group of Companies
  • Stocks in this theme:
    • Muthoot Finance Limited - 50%
    • Muthoot Cap Serv Ltd - 50%

If customer invests in this theme, the money gets invested in 2 stocks, 50% in each one of them.

Fyers Exposures (Margin)

  1. Intraday Trading: Fyers offers upto 16 times margin (or leverage or exposure) in Equity Intra-day segment. Margins are given only for Intraday trading. The actual margin depends on the script. Fyers doesn't offer any margin on delivery trades.
  2. Fyers Exposure for trading in Futures (Index or stocks) - Fyers lets clients take MIS (Margin Intraday Squareoff) positions with following margin:
    • Equity & Index futures - 4 times of NRML(Normal) margin (Order squared off at 3:20pm)
    • Currency futures - 2 times of NRML(Normal) margin (Order squared off at 4.30pm)
  3. Fyers Margin for Options - 4 times of NRML(Normal) margin (Order squared off at 3:20pm)

Fyers Margin Examples

  1. Equity: For example, assuming the leverage/margins is 16x on TCS stocks, it means that with ₹10,000 in your trading account, you can take a position of up-to ₹1,60,000.
  2. Futures & Options selling: Let's assume that the SPAN + Exposure margins for 1 lot of Nifty futures are ₹60,000. A leverage of 4 times (4x) means that you will be able to take a position with just ₹15,000 (15,000*4 = 60,000).
  3. Options Buying: For option buyers, SPAN + Exposure margins are not applicable. To initiate a trade, you will have to pay the entire premium for 1 lot. However, Fyers provided some leverage for near-month Nifty contracts. Normally, to buy Nifty 10800CE you'll have to pay the entire premium of ₹5250. (70 Price* 75 Lot Size). However, if you use cover orders to buy, you will get some margins/leverage and you can buy it for a lesser amount. With a leverage of 1.3x, you will be able to buy 1 lot with just ₹4040 (5250/1.3).

1. The best part is "Fyers Web" terminal. No brokers can beat it.
2. Equity Intraday Brokerage is still little higher side.
3. Worst Customer Support system. Requires substantial improvement. Creating ticket and closing the same without even resolving the problems became a phenomenon.

I opened an account and deposited Rs 5000 and since then they are taking charges after charges. After every trade they are deducting money. I send closer forms 4 times to their address and raised complaint for immediate closing of account. But they are not closing the account and rather sending negative balance in the name of various charges. Do not open account with them.

Not pay attention to their customer.
Neither attend call of their customer nor respond the mail of customers.
I am unable to sell my holdings. For the last fifteen days I am trying to contact them but my call is always kept for long long waiting. A week ago I sent a mail to them to address my issue immediately.They only issued ticket ID but one week has gone but they did not bother to contact me or to resolve my issue. Because of this I am suffering a lot & loosing market opportunities.

FYERS is useless app, very slow and not useful for day trading. Stop looting customers those who open account where you guys tell all charges are waived, then trap them with debit note. Cheaters in fyers team. I have used the chart of fyer for some time, very slow does not refresh, delayed by atleast few minutes inspite of having 200 mbps optic fibre net. Be honest, learn from big guys like zerodha. Atleast few important requirement of new traders if you guys meet would be great. Shamelessly dont rob people. Your support team is dummy bunch of jokers where they dont respond to any mails.

Simple Horrible. Sebi should ban them from operating. I am NRE customer. Had to go through so many processes to open the account. Things were going okay for the first year but things changes after the yes bank issue came up. Now all my balances are blocked with Fyers. They are not doing anything to resolve the issue. Taking advantage of the fact that I am staying outside of India. I would like to warn people to stay away from this company to avoid my situation.

They do not take any responsibility after opening the account. Customer service is pathetic. They never call back after a support ticket is opened. Responses given by different team members are inconsistent. There is no escalation process. Support tickets remain open for weeks and sometimes months with no follow up or closure. Team members keep changing and they was their hands off issues using that as an excuse. Processes are broken. They only say they'll call back, with no response for weeks & months.

1) Charts are good.
2) Apart from Point #1, nothing is good. You can expect glitches any time during market hours and during even off market hours also.
3) Be ready for any platform freeze/not working anytime and thus losses as a result.
4) TOP CLASS customer service that, you have to forget about customer experience. They don't even care about you. You won't get any respect from the team. They'll treat you like a beggar, begging at their office. This is their attitude right from the top of pyramid (CEO) till the bottom of pyramid.

India's biggest FRAUD Broker is FYERS.
It trades from your account and loots you for their commission. Pathetic service. Every alternate days their system is down. You don't get answers from them. They abuse the clients. FYERS do the stop loss hunting and also trades from ur account. Hai na trading aasaan. Sirf account open karo 30 dino mein aapka account khali. Aapko kuch karne ki jaroorat nahin.trading made easy by FRAUD FYERS.

It is a FRAUD Broker. FYERS trade in your account without clients permission for getting more brokerage and commission.
They LOOT you like anything. The actual brokerage applied by them is very high , as they do your stop loss hunting and fraud trades from your account. If you want to really trade then never ever chose FYERS as a broker.
Ekdum FRAUD Broker
