Listen to this article

As many as eight stocks/securities have been put under the ban for trade on Monday, November 15, 2021 under the futures and options segment by the National Stock Exchange (NSE). These securities have been put on ban under the F&O segment as they have crossed 95% of the market-wide position limit (MWPL), as per the NSE.

Punjab National Bank (PNB), Escorts, Sun TV, Bank of Baroda, Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL), Steel Authority of India (SAIL) and Indiabulls Housing Finance are the seven stocks that continue to be under the F&O ban list for today. Whereas National Aluminium Company (Nalco) has been added to the list on Monday. 

The derivative contracts in the mentioned securities have crossed 95% of the market-wide position limit and are therefore have been currently put in the ban period by the stock exchange, said NSE.

“It is hereby informed that all clients/members shall trade in the derivative contracts of said securities only to decrease their positions through offsetting positions," the stock exchange said. "Any increase in open positions shall attract appropriate penal and disciplinary action," NSE added.

No fresh positions are allowed for any of the F&O contracts in that particular stock when it is under the F&O ban period. The MWPL (market-wide position limit) is set by the stock exchanges which is the maximum number of contracts that can be open at any time (Open Interest), therefore, the F&O contracts of that stock enter a ban period if the open interest crosses 95% of the MWPL.
