What is Freeze Quantity in Equity F&O with FYERS?

What is freeze quantity?

Freeze quantity is the maximum number of contracts you can place in a single order for Equity F&O, as determined by the exchange. In the past, if your order exceeded this quantity, it would be rejected, displaying the message "ORDER QTY IS GREATER THAN FREEZE QTY". However, recognising the needs of our traders, we've introduced the order slicing feature on our trading platforms. This allows traders to handle orders beyond the freeze quantity with ease. For a comprehensive understanding of order slicing, refer to this article.
