By Malvika Gurung -- The National Stock Exchange (NSE) has rejigged its Futures and Options (F&O) ban list on September 8, 2023, adding a new stock to the list and retaining all the stocks from the previous session.

The domestic bourse placed a total of nine stocks under its F&O ban list on Friday.

The public sector lender Punjab National Bank (NS: PNBK ) (PNB) is the newest entrant on the NSE F&O ban list.

The leading stock exchange continues to hold all eight stocks from its previous session on Friday. They include the:

  • state-owned steel producer SAIL (NS: SAIL )

The nine securities have exceeded 95% of the market-wide position limit (MWPL), thereby banned for trade under the futures and options segment in the day, and shall continue remaining on the list until their positions fall below 80%.

While on the Futures and Options ban list, no new/fresh F&O positions can be bought or sold for the stock(s), else that trader gets penalised. Traders with existing positions in that security can unwind their positions.

Moreover, the market-wide position limit is set by the stock exchanges.

The NSE directs all clients/members to trade in the derivative contracts of the aforementioned securities only to decrease their positions through offsetting positions.
