How to do BTST trades at Zerodha?

You can do a BTST(Buy Today Sell Tomorrow) trade at Zerodha by simply buying a stock using the CNC product type today and selling the same stock tomorrow by using CNC.

After you buy the stock today, the stock is supposed to be delivered into your Demat account in T+2 days because of the settlement cycle . However, in a BTST trade, you sell the stock the next day before the stock is delivered to your demat account.

Buying shares on Monday and selling the same shares on Tuesday is an example of a BTST trade. Even though you’re not selling the shares from your Demat, DP charges will still be levied for BTST trades. Click here to learn more.
