Does prostocks offer basket order facility? Actually I will be trading heavily and even 20 rupees or 9 rupees will be very high for me. A fixed monthly charge of 1000 or less will suit me. But I need to place multi legged market orders. Hence I want basket order facility. Please do not call me as the number given is incorrect. Please email and I will open an account through you.
