After you placed the trade

After you place an order, the exchange sends you a confirmation of your sale or purchase. This is called a Contract Note. It contains all the details of your trade like price, quantity, date, etc. At times of dispute, the Contract Note can be used to prove your ownership.

Every trader receives a Contract Note after placing an order.
