The reason for coming up with new Brokerage plan is due to stiff competion amoung brokerage houses and ICICI securities loosing its market share due to high brokerage. If one looks at flat brokerage rate offered by other brokerage houses even 0.55% flat brokerage offered by ICICI direct is still on the higher side. Well on tiered rate plan ...I-Saver (Slabwise brokerage based on transaction volume/Turnover) one needs to clearly understand the underlying facts very clearly which are overlooked by most of the people. In this plan ICICI direct has smartly created a slab wise brokerage plan which depends on your turnover of the transaction volument within one quarter. But on the transaction which are being done in that quarter it always charges you brokerage as per highest brokerage slab(0.75%) even for a single day transactions even if it fits in the lower brokerage slab(say 0.55%). By doing this ICICI direct is not only enjoying on the excess brokerage that they are charging their customer(for no reason) but also not paying any interest on the excess amount charged for the said period. Well, therefore be careful in case you are dealing with ICICI direct as they are still charging you higher brokerage upfront in I-Saver Brokerage plan.

recently i came to know icicidirect is providing trading terminal "Trade Racer" but not to existing subscribers it is only for new customers opening trading account with icicidirect. ICICIDIRECT urned brokerage more than 10 crore ruppes from current subscribers so why they do not want to provide new trading terminal "Trade Racer" to existing subscribers?

Open your account with icici direct If you are a medium or long term investor, if you want to do intraday trading then search some other in your local city.

I have experienced that the brokerage is too high in icicidirect. The site gets very slow between 3.00 and 3.30 pm.

Never open an account with those brokers who are not giving application based sofware platform to its retail clients. Because browser based trading platforms are usually with full of bugs. It never suitable for a trader kind of people who trades quite frequently. Always choose an applicatin based trading platform. Don't look at brokerage structures. Higher the brokerage greater the service. This is my experience of 8 years. Choose among INDIABULLS, SHAREKHAN, MOTILAL OSWAL, INDIA INFOLINE, KOTAK SECURITIES, ANGEL BROKING, IL & FS INVESTMART, RELIGARE, ANAND RATHI, MANSUKH, MANGAL KESHAV, EMKAY SHARE etc.

Always opt for an online brokerage house that provides application based software to their retail clients. Because software is very convinient for fund transfer, fast for trade executation.
