It has very good Website with technical superiority. Lot of data and research capability. However, brokerage is highest amongst all the Brokerages. It is Highly reliable. Customer service in general is OK.

I have never had a good experience with any of the icici services. The charges applied in transactions and interest levied are huge and lot of unexplained charges. Never planning to take any more service from this fraud company which solely makes profit by cheating its clients not through any meaningful service.

The website and technical facilities are excellent. Advise available including data is excellent. Brokerage is little higher.

This plateform is very good. However Brokerages and other charges are on higher side. Lower brokerage and charges would attract more business. The Company should review its brokerage and other charges.

Having opened account by filling numerous documents and paying Rs.25K + apprx.3K as taxes, find the brokerage to be quite high, less friendly with low volume investors/traders, paid Rs.2K for training but did not get one so far. Communication directly with ICICIDirect management is missing. There need to be effective online live chat and strongly suggest that ICICIDirect take a vital step towards getting more friendly with small investors wishing to do Intraday trading from home. This will greatly improve on their rating and keeping them the Number One Trading Site for all in India. Please take care of common people and encourage more common Indians/Work-from-Home small investors to get valued services from ICICIDIRECT online Trading.

I have ICICIDirect for last few years and I would totally agree with the above. Dont their education or tips, they are useless.

Not good to open account with them. Their brokerage is the highest and their recommendations are also poor.

As per one Mr Charan Kumar,Customer Service Officer,ICICI Securities "As per brokerage plan The minimum value of the order that would be accepted would be Rs. 200/- and the minimum brokerage would be Rs. 75/- per trade. The minimum brokerage is Rs.75/- or 2.5% of the trade value whichever is lower"
Hi Samir as you are ready to help then please suggest which is reliable & cheap

Be careful while opening a broking account with ICICI Direct, Their I-Saver plan should be avoided by beginner who can not have more than Rs 25 lakh quarterly value of shares traded as they charges hefty 0.75 per cent brokerage. Also if one trades for less than Rs 4500/- worth of shares they are charged even higher. Even their I Secure trading account option where brokerage is 0.55 per cent, if you don''t trade for at least Rs 6500/- he is charged brokerage at more than 0.55 per cent
I am doing share trading with icici securities from last one year,if any body need any information regarding brokerage or any kind of inquiry i will help you,coz i paid 7 lakh rs brokerage in 8 month, I know each and every point of brokerage.

BreakEven is not possible in ICICI tradings plus it cannot be converted to Investment, unlike ShareKhan & AngelBroking. I till now understood, Margin Plus and Future Plus marign percentage. Can anyone explain ?
I consider it is not worth for Investment and Trading both, correct me if I am wrong. (Due to brokerage upto 2.5%)

Look forward to knowing more tips on trading efficiently with ICICIDirect Securities site as have experienced high brokerage cost in Future Options Trading as was not aware that low volume trades invite higher charges. Also in Equity shares confused about varying rate of charges for Cash Buy, BTST, Margin Trade. So which way is the best?
plz. Decrease your brokrage immidiate. If not, your condition going like nokia in mobile market. Nokia's almost over 50% customer going to other companies. Becaandroid & price issue. & your customer going beca high brokrage. I am your mad customer. Becai am waiting to decrease your brokrage rate from past 6 year's
Being novice in investments and share markets I have never faced problems i investing. In my view the A/c maint fees or brokerage does not matter if the online transaction is user friendly and smooth as in ICICI DIRECT. Finality as the name implies it is really "DIRECT".

ICICI DIRECT is very good trading terminal for new as well as old customer.I am using its Trade Racer software for long,and satisfy with it.Though people say brokerage is high but you are getting fast and timely execution.If you are earning Rs.1000/day why you are crying for brokerage of Rs.100.You are getting 900 profit without dropping sweat.And its safe as providing 3in1 account.People dont bother about how to trade in profit side and scream about brokerage.

you need to pay brokerage whether it is profit or loss, right? how do you guarantee there is going to be profit and brokerage need not be a concern? Is there some guaranteed mechanism to make profit?
291.2. Amit Dec 8, 2012 10:24:57 PM IST |
Irfan, you are right with profit trades. But I am pretty confident you can get similar or better service at much less cost elsewhere. The competition among brokerage services is very high, so getting better for less is not a problem.
