Virtual Account

What is a Virtual Account?
A virtual account is a term used to describe an account created specifically for your paper trading journey. In order to purchase or sell any form of derivative, the account is also financed with fictitious or virtual sums. Similar to your typical accounts, it would routinely track your pay-ins and pay-outs, with the exception that you wouldn’t need an email or password to access it.

What is Paper Trading?
Paper trading is a simulated trading environment where a trader can use fake money to purchase or sell equities in the market in real-time. For all aspiring traders, it is the finest place to practise trading. Profits and losses will exist, but only with fictional funds. Therefore, paper trading is also referred to as virtual trading.

  1. Derivative: Financial contracts that have or draw their value from an underlying asset are referred to as derivatives.
  1. Strike Price: A strike price is a predefined price set by the trader for the options at a particular time. In other words, the strike price is the agreed-upon target price at which we agree to purchase or sell an option.
  1. Premium Price: The price of an option premium is the option contract’s current market value. Thus, the money that the seller (writer) of an option contract receives from the opposite side is premium  price.
  1. Lot Size: Only specific quantities are ever purchased when purchasing options. This figure is determined by SEBI, and it changes periodically.
