What is Buying Limit?

Buying Limit or BL is the amount of money that you set set aside from your bank account for share trading + the amount realized from the sale of any shares you may have previously made - any purchases you have made.

Buying Limit tells an investor his limit for a given settlement for the desired stock exchange.

Example:

Buying Limit
Suppose you have $ 100,000 in your Bank A/C and you set aside $ 50,000 to purchase shares. Here your Buying Limit is $ 50,000.

If you have sold shares worth $ 100,000 on the Treading Day or the day before, your buying limit goes upto $ 150,000. This means that you can buy shares worth $ 150,000. If you buy shares worth $ 50,000 on the Trading Day then your Buying Limit gets reduced to $ 100,000.
