What’s new on Upstox Pro for Traders? Let’s begin with some major updates.

⚙️Affordable Options 

We understand that every trader has a unique risk appetite and budget. That's why we've introduced Affordable Options, offering two budget-friendly categories:

  • Options ₹5000: These are ideal for budget-conscious traders, this category offers a curated selection of Index and Stock options, each priced at  ₹5000 or less per contract. It's the perfect way to enter the world of options trading without a significant financial commitment.
  • Options ₹10,000: If you have a bit more flexibility in your trading budget, this category is designed just for you. Explore a diverse range of Index and Stock options, all priced at  ₹10,000 or less per contract.

Remember that none of these options contracts are recommendatory in nature. Always do your research, consider your financial situation, and trade responsibly.


⚙️Basket Order (Web)

Trade smarter with Upstox's basket orders feature now available on our Pro Web platform! Execute up to 20 orders for multiple stocks, futures, or options in a single go and enjoy multiple benefits. To create a basket order on Upstox, give the basket a name; select the stocks, futures, or options you want to add and specify details like price, quantity, and order type. Once you've added all your orders, confirm to place the order to send them to the exchange for execution.
