What happens if I trade on a holiday
If you trade on a holiday, there are a few things that could happen. The markets could be closed, which means you wouldn’t be able to trade. Or, the markets could be open but there could be low volume, which could make it difficult to get your trades executed. Lastly, if the markets are open and there is high volume, it could be an opportunity to take advantage of some price movements that might happen due to news or events.
Can I carry forward my trades to the next day if BSE is closed for a holiday
The answer to this question depends on the broker you are using. Some brokers allow you to carry forward your trades to the next day, while others do not. If BSE is closed for a holiday, it is best to check with your broker to see if they allow carryovers.
