Delivery based trading is normally considered as a safer approach for trading in shares when compared to day trading. Delivery based trading involves buying shares on a market day and selling them only after receiving the delivery of those shares in demat account.
Things Investors Should Know About Trading
In order to receive credit into the demat account it is important to submit the "Receipt-in form", which is similar to filling in pay-in slips to receive credit into your bank account. Standing Instruction is a facility provided for the convenience of the investors, where in an investor who has opted for this facility doesn't need to submit the receipt in forms every time he wants to buy securities. However, this facility is discretionary and can be availed only when an investor opts for it.

DIS of a depository account is similar to a cheque book of a bank account, which is needed to be submitted by the investor whenever he wants to sell securities. When opening a depository account, investor must ensure that:
