Stock Market Profit/Losses


All futures contracts for each member are marked-to- market (MTM) to the daily settlement price of the relevant nifty future contract at the end of each day. The profit/losses are computed as the difference between:

1.      The trade price and the day’s settlement price for contracts executed during the day but not squared up.

2.      The previous day’s settlement price and the current day’s settlement price for brought forward contracts.

3.      The buy price and the sell price for nse india contracts executed during the day and squared up.

The settlement price for the contract for today is assumed to be Rs.105.


DETAILS. Bough t/Sold. PRICE.  
Bought forward from previous day ioo@ioo 105 500
Traded during day Bought 200 @100    
Sold 100 @ 102 102 200
Open Position (Not squared up). 100 @ 100 105 500
