Frequently Asked Questions

Questions on your mind? Dont worry we have the answers!

Trading in any speculative instrument carries risks. This applies to futures as well. Futures contracts carry market-based risks, leverage risk, and more. However, choosing the right futures broker can help navigate these risks better. Dhan is a futures broker that is SEBI-regulated and has risk management tools for you, the user, while trading in futures.

There is no minimum capital that's set in stone for futures trading. However, you will have to deposit a margin for taking a position in any futures contract. In fact, you can take bigger positions with smaller capital using Dhan's Pledge Margin feature.

Whether you should trade futures or options depends on your risk appetite and financial goals as well as your trading style. If you prefer straightforward trades and have a lower risk tolerance, futures trading might be more suitable. On the other hand, if you are comfortable with more complex strategies, options trading may be a better fit. Either way, you can access incredible features for online f&o trading on Dhan!

Those who trade futures can tell you that these are the benefits:
  • Profits and income generation
  • Diverse underyling instruments
  • Hedging to manage risk
You too can start trading futures online using a platform like Dhan.
Yes, futures trading carries risks that you must manage, starting with market-based risks. The price of a futures contract is subject to movements in the market, earnings calls, economic indicators, and more. As a result, your analysis and trading setup must be solid. Other than this, there are leverage-based risks. All of this and more can be avoided by using tools like Trailing Stop Loss, Trader's Controls, and more on Dhan.

First off, you'll have to pay more margin than options to take positions in futures (in most cases). However, you can get more margin for trading by pledging the shares that are already in your portfolio. These shares will serve as collateral and Dhan will give you instant margin in return.

Dhan is a SEBI regulated options trading platform that is compliant with all the rules and regulations laid out by regulatory bodies like SEBI and exchanges. Apart from following these rules, Dhan employs its own risk policies and safety measures to ensure that you as a user are protected at all times.

You can start futures trading on Dhan in just three steps:
  • Click on "Start Now" and Scan the QR to download the Dhan App
  • Or, you can Open Demat Account from your desktop in 3 easy steps - Add Mobile Number and Email ID to get verified.
  • Upload the necessary documents required for digital demat account opening.
  • Complete the E-sign.
This is how simple it is to open account on Dhan to trade futures!

Dhan is always transparent with fees and pricing for all segments. For trading futures, you'll be charged ₹20 (or 0.03%) per trade for all segment futures.

Dhan does provide instant margin pledge benefit for trading futures online. All you have to do is check the money tab of the platform to see how much pledge benefit you stand to get.
