Please read my pathetic story How ICICI brokerage and Consulting has screwed up my 40 Lakhs worth of shares.

I opened ICICI Demat account 7 years back for holding my ESOPs.

When my ESOP stock was increasing , ICICI direct brokers , sales persons digged into my account and continuosly followed , lured and tempted me like anything saying to pledge my stocks and they will help me to grow 4-5 times richer with their top consulting people.

I resisted for almost 2.5 years and was atlast hooked.

So they assigned some inexperienced consultant to me, and forced me to sell my ESOP and started the game. With inefficient and inexperienced advisers and consultants they totally looted my money around 35 lakhs in 20 months . Whenever I escalated to their RM ,VP , They always say the suggestions on Put , call options and and other equity trading were totally based on their reasearch and analysis team which is No#1 in this field.Sometimes they never respond to my calls and mails ..Just they kept quite unanswered.


I am not sure how many have benifited by ICICI Direct research and consulting team . But I am sure there would quite a lot of people lost their money and not telling out.

My friends and investors , please donot get into ICICI trap and loose your hard earned money. BEWARE of ICICI Direct.

People please refer all their terms and conditions, brokerage etc before investing/trading. Then accordingly plan you trading strategy. No point in blaming the broker, instead sail as per tide.

I agree sometimes their portal hangs. Other wise everything seems fine.

If you are regular trader with high volume, then go for prepaid plan of icicidirect which will help you to bring down your brokerage. I pay 0.03% brokerage in futures.
There are certain plans which can bring your brojerage down to 0.02%. But then you will have to pay advance brokerage, and it is beneficial for those who trades in derivatives with high volume.

the most expensive brokerage
only for high networth individuals or nris
they dont care about small investors ,traders as simple as that

dont go by the convenience of 3 in one account or by icici bank name
if u r a small trader investor find a discount broker
website hangs whenever high volume trade in nifty ..mostly on opening ,closing thus small traders are stuck with margin positions .
it happens so many times it seems planned
so called research is useless and mostly off target

no intraday charts even...

I am a customer of ICICI Direct and ICICI Bank since 5 & 14 years respectively. I am absolutely frustrated with the service provided by ICIC direct and the kind of mindless procedures in place.
On 8th April 2014 I contacted my enlisted Relationship Manager to 18th April 2014). To my utter disappointment, I faced the following problems with the relationship manager and till date 29th May 2014 my account has not been converted. My application is now on hold due to some procedural nonsense.
(1)      RM could not correctly convey the account conversion procedure. It took him several weeks after my arrival in India to find out and relay the documents required for this purpose.
(2)      The RM does not even have the basic understanding of types of account that are offered to an NRI customer.
(3)      On multiple occasions, he never came for the appointment at the agreed time. Moreover, I had to call him multiple times to ensure that he arrives for the appointment.
(4)      I had to call him multiple times for various follow ups.
(5)      He point blank lied to me that he submitted my application on 22nd April which I later came to know was not the case as my application was not traceable online for over a week. NRI helpdesk had to intervene to get this resolved.
(6)      I have been told that ICICI direct requires my documents (in foreign language) to be translated to English. I find this utterly stupid as the Indian Immigration allows me to enter the country without translating my visa then why does ICICI require this. Also, Citibank was able to convert my bank account to NRI account without getting the documents translated. I think itís about time you re-evaluate your procedures.
(7)       Also, I donít understand why you require an Indian address proof for NRI customers. NRIs do not reside in India & itís rare for them to have an Indian address proof.
My application is now stuck becaof some document issues & I do not see them getting resolved anytime soon. I am now considering switching over to your competitors. I will also be sharing this feedback online on all possible websites.

very high brokerage....no chance of profit for small trader or investor

so called intraday calls are totally useless as you will never be able to trade those calls...,icicidirect will suck your hard earned money by various charges

dont get tempted by convenience of linked account ,if you are a small trader or investor find a good discount broker....do some effort

I have the account since 10 years. But mostly I Reliance Money due to brokerage charges.

1. For anyone trading high volume, this site is useless, as the brokerage is too high.
2. The menu is too big.
3. Don''t know why they don''t the standard NSE or BSE codes rather than devising their own codes of 6 characters?
