See the picture above. If I place this order, the system will automatically place a limit buy order at 8469.25. I have mentioned the target is 20 points and the stop loss is 10 points. So once my buy order is filled at 8469.25 two more orders will be placed in the system. One is a profit taking sell order at 8469.25+20 = 8489.25 and another stop loss sell order at 8469.25-10 = 8459.25. I have also mentioned the trail SL as 200 ticks. Nifty’s minimum tick size is 0.05. Hence 200 tick = 200 x 0.05 = 10 points. So once price moves in my direction by 10 points the SL will automatically be trailed by 200 ticks or 10 points. So once price reaches 8469.25+10 = 8479.25 the stop loss will be trailed to 8459.25+10 = 8469.25, i.e. my buy price. In case price hits 8489.25, i.e. my target the stop loss order will automatically get cancelled. Or, if the price hits the stop loss the target order will automatically gets cancelled.
The Margin Advantage
Bracket Order positions get extra leverage subsequent to the danger is covered by the mandatory Stoploss that you place while entering a position. The margin obliged would be taking into account the quantum of your SL, and in the scope of 1.5% to 2.5% of the whole contract size.
