We have an important update regarding Quarterly settlement of Running Account of Client’s Funds lying with ProStocks:

What is present practice of Quarterly Settlement of funds?

Present SEBI regulations requires that every stock broker should do settlement of funds for each client by returning excess (surplus) funds (balance) lying with Stock broker, once in every calendar quarter and gap between two such settlement should not be more than 90 days.

Stock broker are free to decide day of settlement and which can different day for different client.

This does not mean client will not get funds as and when requested. Clients are free to request withdrawal of funds as and when they wish and as many time as they want.

This settlement means whether the client has requested or not, Stock broker must return the excess funds once in every calendar quarter.

How to calculate surplus (excess) funds:

Clear Credit balance on the day of settlement:

Less: Funds PayIn due from client in next two working days

Less: Margin Obligation on unsettled open position

Less: 125% of Margin Obligation on the day of settlement

Balance if positive is Surplus / Excess funds. If negative it is deemed settlement, as nothing is payable under settlement mechanism.

What is the new change?

As per new SEBI circular SEBI/HO/MIRSD/DOP/P/CIR/2022/101, effective from Oct 2022 to Dec 2022 quarter,

All Stock Brokers across exchange and segment needs to do settlement of funds of all their client on First Friday of every calendar quarter. This has market wide impact.

First such date for settlement is 7th October 2022. We will initiate the settlement on the 7th and the funds should come to your bank account between 7th Oct 2022 night and 10th October 2022 morning. Since all the Stock brokers are doing across all their client on one single day may cause pressure on banking System and there may or may not be delay.

Important points to note:

  • Surplus funds as per above method will be returned to you, you can transfer them back on 8th or 9th of October for use on 10th of October i.e. Monday.
  • Avoid transferring funds to ProStocks using net Banking Payment Gateway on 6th Oct and 7th Oct 2022 ( except HDFC Bank or Yes bank Account) , as we do not get funds on real-time from payment gateway service provider. Please use NEFT / RTGS / IMPS / UPI or HDFC and Yes Bank Net Banking gateway.

    How does the GTT feature work?

    GTT stands for Good Till Trigger. They are triggered condition order in which you need to set condition and when your set condition is completed your order will go to the exchange and on the set Limit Price or Market Price it will get executed.

    GTT orders are valid for next 365 days or till it gets triggered.

    A GTT is a trigger which places a limit order or market price order (at the limit price or market price, selected by you) as and when the trigger price, selected by you, is met or breached. In case the trigger price is breached during a particular day and the limit price selected is not exactly met on the same day, all such orders will be cancelled at the end of such trading day session.

    The trigger set on GTT is valid only once, if the order is placed and is not executed for any reason, the GTT order has to be replaced again.

    If the Last Traded Price (LTP) of a scrip jumps than the trigger price selected, or if the LTP opens at a gap up or gap down breaching the selected trigger price, an order would be placed at the selected limit price. GTT Order will be placed when normal market opens. GTT will not participate in preopen market.

    Terms of Usage - Good Till Trigger (GTT)

    These Terms of Use govern the usage of services of the GTT Feature. By agreeing to use this GTT Feature terms, you agree to have read and understood these clauses, conditions, the modalities of how the GTT Feature clearly works, and ProStocks’s policies, procedures and risk disclosure documents.


    1. “Good Till Trigger Feature” or “GTT Feature” shall be defined as per "GTT Feature as a Service".
    2. “Last Traded Price” or “LTP” is the last traded price at which a stock/scrip was traded on the Exchange and received by our server.
    3. “Limit Order” , "Market Order" , "Stop Loss order" , "Stop Loss market Order" or order shall be defined as per the NSE “Order Conditions” which can be found here: https://www.nseindia.com/products/content/equities/equities/trading_system.htm.
    4. “RMS” or “Risk Management System” is the system in place at ProStocks which monitors all positions of ProStocks clients on a real time basis and sees to it that clients maintain margins with respect to all positions/positional trades and that ProStocks maintains margins at a broker/trading member level with the clearing houses. The RMS also constantly vets each order, on a pre-trade basis, placed by a client towards the exchanges to see whether the order is as per ProStocks’s risk management policies and procedures, and whether the client has placed such order with sufficient cash balances, holdings and as per the rules set by and the Exchanges. The RMS continuously enforces ProStocks’s terms, policies and procedures, by enforcing limits of margins/squaring off positions with respect to each client, as per the risk management policies followed by ProStocks. You, as a client, are required to always be updated with ProStocks’s risk management policies, terms, and procedures.
