RMS Policies and Procedures
A.Setting up client’s exposure limits
The Exchange may from time to time fix client exposure limits in the interest of orderly working of the markets. Within that overall ceiling, a client can trade within the exposure limit set from time to time by the Broker for the client.
ENRICH impose new limits urgently on the basis of risk perception, risk profile of the client and other factors considered relevant including but not limited to limits on account of exchange / SEBI directions / limits (such as broker level / market level limits in security specific / volume specific exposures etc.).
Sometimes ENRICH may be unable to inform the client of such variation, reduction or imposition in advance. ENRICH won't be authority for such contrast, reduction or client’s inability cause any order through online trading system on their trading account of any such contrast, reduction or imposition of limits.
In the sole discretion of the Commodity Broker, a client may be allowed to trade beyond exposure limit or the limit may be increased. A client having availed such indulgence shall not be heard to complain about his trades only on this account and shall meet the margin shortfall at the earliest without waiting for reminder. The golden rule is Limit your exposure so as to limit your risk to your means.
1.While computing the available margin following parameter consider-

In cases where the order/price of such orders is high, it might lead to huge losses to broker. In order to avoid such a situation, it is imperative that certain limits are prescribed for each terminal allotted to member broker.
We ensure documentation of internal controls on areas like order modification / cancellation, client code changes and post-trade activities are in place and are being updated from time-to-time.
