We cannot make any profit with ICICI. They will make you loss maker by their big leviable brokerages. It is suitable only for higher amount investors. If you are starter in stock market, it is not a wise decision to open an account with ICICI. You will loose your money inevitably.
highest brokerages.....not suitable for trading in derivatives for beginners...only good for big traders website going slow whenever big moves come is real problem...
no solution to this....so you pay high and yet get very poor service
the charting tools are useless...for intraday ... no candlestick charts...intraday very poor interface ...somehow their symbols are different from nse...i know brokerages their own symbols but icicidirect are weird the website interface is too poor u cant view your existing position in 1 click go to the segment...equity..f&o etc...select open positions...select...product click view ... the watchlist in normal website opens in separate wibdow for equities...which makes it difficult to keep track of prices and open positions there is another feature trade racer web....which is a strain on eyes due to poor interface ...small fonts...if u increase fontsize it goes out of window
once website is down you are left wondering what to do
mobile website is too difficult to ...and u can learn algebra better than trying to trade on it
it is advised that if for some reason u have to mobile site..it only to squareoff positions...dont try intraday trading(fresh positions)with mobile site ...u will regret it
for new traders with few lakhs a strict no ...coz u wont even recover brokerages with intraday or positional derivatives too
might be good for high net worth traders...who trade heavily and can take advantage of reduced brokerages

Has been using this platform for the last few years, being a small scale investor, brokerage is too high to earn some money, technical support very poor, as problems remains unresolved after repeated complaints

Undoubtedly ICICI DIRECT is the best, but it is the worst broker if you are a small investor becathere minimum brokerage is 35 plus taxes in all the cases. So it is suitable for instititutional investors and for those long term investors who apply only IPO and Mutual funds. It is impossible for small investors to make a profit of single penny. 3in1 concept attracts but kills. Sharekhan is the best for small investors.Attach it with YES BANK and get 7% interest too.
Brokerage mentioned in this page is valid only if you trade for some 4.5k+ or 6.5k+ for these 2 plans, else the brokerage charges are 2.5%. They even charge brokerage for MF buy/SIP which many other brokers don''t. If you shop more than 7k every time & don''t buy mutual funds, you shouldn''t bother but enjoy all the fantastic features of online trading.
