Bracket order is a type of intraday order where you can enter a new position along with a target/exit price and a stop loss order. As soon as the market order is executed, the system places two more orders for profit booking and stop loss. When one of these two orders are executed, the other order is cancelled automatically.



It is a special type of order for intra-day positions and to take advantage of extra exposure while being protected through a stop-loss order.
