I am buying an nifty option as intraday order and after which particular option will be in my position,can sell the option as forever?
Does forever support Intraday??

Hi @Nivetha,

OCO is available currently for F&O Normal orders. We have your feedback on this feature to include Intra-day as well.

Post DDPI launch, we will build this feature for Equity as well.

For real-time help, feel free to reach out to us on 022-48906273 or Live Chat directly from the app.

By when can we expect DDPI Launch?

Hi @Satyam,

DDPI is already in Beta phase with a few users. Very soon will be released for all users.

Post this, we will build Foreover Sell with DDPI and announce when we are ready.

Forever OCO is used to place the Target and/or Stop loss for your open position. Here, the limit order refers to Target & Trigger order refers to Stop loss.

In the above screenshot shared, the buy order is considered for a short sell position wherein you need to place a target below the market and stop loss above the market.

We have introduced BO for options by which you can place First leg + Target & SL.

very complicated lang you replied . how is oco for open position ? than how can it be forever order ?? how in world buy order is considered as sell ?


We tried reaching you on your registered mobile number but the same went not reachable.

Request you to help us at your convenient time so we can connect with you to address your query or else you may email us at


While you connect with our team, just to clarify, if you have an open Buy F&O position (overnight), and you wish to put a stop loss and target for squaring-off that position, you can do so by putting a Sell OCO order.

And if you have an open Sell F&O position (overnight), and you wish to put a stop loss and target for squaring-off that position, you can do so by putting a Buy OCO order.

To place the OCO order, you need to again search for the scrip in which you have the open position, and select Foreover Order.

The OCO order is a Normal order type. For Intra-day F&O trading, you may use Bracket Order.

We have noted your feedback for an OCO order type, where you can place all the legs via 1 order, that is, Fresh position (Buy/Sell) + Square off (Stop Loss & Target). Similarly, we already have feedback from users to have this option available from the positions page, and for intra-day orders as well.

This is our first iteration of the OCO order. We will continue working to make this experience seamless.


if possible make and YouTube video for user who are confused .


Feedback noted. We will try to bring in a video explaining the same.

oco order has not buy price with stop loss or target

Bracket order has a three price option
all option in one windows like bracket order

Hi Team,

forever order are executing well now without slippage from the past few days I noticed. So, I think it is cracked by you. Just wanted to know if the OCO forever is also coming or need to wait more as it is already implemented in options
