While trying to access the login window and customer service at icicidirect.com will not be accessed. But the other all windows are accessing, why only the login and customer service windows are not accessing. ( "Icici helpdesk says from our side everything is ok check your side")'Requesting experienced people to solve the problem.

I love icicidirect due to its personalised online trading.
But I hate it too due to so many reasons
1. Its Charts & quottes section is worst
- often not available
- poorly updated
- less useful indicators present
- Very poor response even after repeated e-mailing
(Not ready to accept the fault)
even non-finacial sites like yahoo is also having a very good charting sectiion with so many useful indicators for technical analysis, 24Hrs. AVAILABLE!!

the really frustrating part of icicidirect is not able to access the site when needed the most. The site simply shows the message

"Future & Options


Dear Customer,

Currently you cannot login to Futures & Options trading due to technical Reasons.You will not be able to access your account till 12:00 Hrs on May 16, 2008. We apologise for the inconvenience caused to you.

ICICIdirect.com

The site cannot be displayed due to technical reasons" NOW who would tolerate this kind of message when your money is at stake? There is a disaster waiting to happen at icicidirect if someone takes action against them.Also reduction of brokerage is necessary

Icicidirect is simply unfair!
1) Quite often (always in the first 15 mins when markets open, and occasionally during the day), the order placed gets queued status. This means one cannot cancel the order, neither square off. One even does not know whether order got executed. The status remains like that for over an hour. If market goes against, they square off at a high rate.
Just avoid this brokerage. Also the brokerage rate is 2% (buying and selling together) for delivery.

Service of ICICIDIRECT.COM is better than Religare Securities. I have account with ICICIDIRECT.COM for last 8 months and I have no problem accept brokerage is high. My wife has opened in Jan 2008 with Religare Securities but till date trading could not be started. The agent is not lifting phone and no bondy is replying e-mail.
MY ADVICE TO ICICIDIRECT REPRESENTATIVE
PLZ BROKRAGE( KAM KRO )
OTHERWISE YOU WILL LOOSE ALL YOUR CLIENTS
I AM YOUR COSTOMER SINCE 2 YERS BUT I SHIFTING
TO RELIANCE MONEY .I LOVE ICICIDIRECT BUT
(AAP HUME MAJBOOR KAR RAHE HAI KI HUM AAP KA SATH CHORE)
SO BE SERIOUS DO SOMETHING IMEDIATELY
PLZ PLZ CUT DOWN BROKRAGE....

Although ICICI have no facility of live monitor it is user friendly,if the brokerage can be lowered to .03% for Marginplus trading & if the system of profit limit can be introduced, existing customer will never think for switch-over.

The only good with ICICI Direct is ease of using bank account linked with it. Nothing else is good, in the end they will take away all of your profit or add to your loss. Reliance Money would be the best if it had the ease of using bank. One can easily transfer money to Reliance Money but withrawing money is very frustrating. Still overall I think Reliance Money is better than ICICI Direct.

DP ID : IN302902 & CLIENT ID : 41275570. It is an old account and
ICICI INFORMED THAT DOCUMENTS were lost due to flood in Chennai. Duplicate documents along with PAN Card copies were sent several times and there is no response. Because of this I am not able carry-out any trading and I am not able to appy new issues. Further I am not able to sell the loacked shares.

ICICIDIRECT Services are very good in all respect. Website is very user friendly. Responses from helpdesk is very fast. Queries get answered fast and to the point.
Cash Brokerage is TOO High. Technical problems on site are there some times.
Opening trades are not possible. Orders remain in que for long. You can not take advantage of volatile opening trades.
IPO allottments can not be sold in Opening bells.
I have seen Indiabulls and HDFC trading websites also but they are not as user friendly as ICICI Direct.
I have tried giving a balanced view. Viewers may make their own judgements.

Hi I have just now opened an demat account with ICICI. I am a beginner and would like to know whether to proceed with it or should I opt for some other provider.

I opted ICICI as I was quite happy with there online banking service.

I completely agree with all the folks here that ICICI is useless.
I have done lot of research on various online trading options and Reliance Money seems to be the best in terms of user interface, brokarage etc.
ICICIDirect is the worst in terms of customer service and the website is having technical problems every now & then. No point in staying with ICICI with so much brokarage etc.

I am using ICICI Direct since last 2 months but decided to shift to Reliance Money now. I am tired with ICICI Direct
