Impact of Limit and Trigger Orders on Displayed Holding Quantity

Why does my holding quantity appear as zero when my order isn't executed?

If you place a limit or trigger order and it's pending execution, the quantity of that specific stock in your holdings will show as zero. This temporary change ensures you avoid placing duplicate orders for the same stock. Once your order is executed or cancelled, your holdings will update to reflect the actual quantities.

For instance, you place a limit order to buy 30 shares of Federal Bank in your FYERS account.
  1. Before Order Execution: The quantity of Federal Bank shares in your holdings temporarily shows as zero, signaling an active but unexecuted order.
  1. After Cancellation: Once cancelled, the holdings tab will display the Original quantities of Federal Bank shares.
