EXTREMELY HIGH BROKERAGE INTRADAY AS WELL AS DELIVERY
EG
DELIVERY BROKERAGE COMES TO .75% OR MORE ONCE TAXES AND DUTIES ARE ADDED
NIFTY FUTURES BROKERAGE ....INTRADAY IT COMES TO 250-260 PER LOT
anyone who trades intraday knows many trades are scrached...or cut near cost 1 2 points above/below COST

so SUCH HIGH BROKERAGE MEANS UR LOSSES WILL EXCEED YOUR PROFIT ALWAYS...

WEBSITE HANGS NO DOUBT ABOUT IT

FOR SOME UNKNOWN REASON THEY PROVIDE
4-5 DIFFRENT INTERFACE A WEBSITE FOR TRADING,THAN THERE IS TRADE RACER WEBSITE ,THAN TRADE RACER APPLICATION...
ALL THREE ARE EQUALLY CONFUSING FOR A NEW TRADER....
FOR PROFESSIONALS MIGHT BE USEFUL
MOBILE WEBSITE IS WORSE...ALSO A MOBILE APPLICATION

THE LAYOUT OF ALL THREE IS SO DIFFERENT AND CONFUSING....


NO INTRADAY STREAMING CHARTS TO REGULAR CUSTOMERS ...HOW IS ONE SUPPOSED TO TRADE INTRADAY WITHOUT THESE

ONE ADVANTAGE FOR THOSE WISHING TO PLAY BIG IS IT OFFERS VERY HIGH LEVERAGE MEANS U CAN TRADE VERY BIG USING LESS MARGIN

AND OF COURSE SEE YOUR MONEY EVAPORATE

NO SINGLE WAY TO MONITOR ALL YOUR OPEN POSITIONS

CHARTING TOOLS FOR REGULAR CUSTOMERS ARE VERY BAD AND NOT USER FRIENDLY AT ALL
THIS IS SOLELY DESIGNED FOR HIGH NET WORTH INDIVIDUALS....
MEANS THOSE TRADING HEAVILY DAILY SAY FEW LAKHS CRORES DAILY
THEY ARE RIDING ON SUCESS OF ICICIBANK AS OPENING OF LINKED ACCOUNT AND TRANFERRING MONEY IS EZEE ...
ALSO PEOPLE TRUST THE ICICI NAME AND ARE HESITANT TO TRY SMALL ,LESSER KNOWN BROKERS
TRADERS WHO R THINKING OF STARTING TRADING ....NEW TO MARKET
TRADE ONLY SMALL QUANTITIES INTRADAY...OR
INVESTORS WHO WISH TO INVEST IN MARKET NO TRADING ...ALL SHOULD NOT EVEN LOOK IN DIRECTION OF ICICIDIRECT...

In my experience it is the worst - my experience with angel, HDFC, Geojit and religare are superb by comparison ( I am struggling even to close the account at ICICI and get the last of my securities traded ). I strongly advise any wannabe investor to keep away from ICICI as their charges are high and their service in my experience is the worst of the lot.

ICICI Direct - Very Poor system of trading. If your are new to the trade, it is 100% your will loose all your money.

One of the best Cheating in share trading is ICICI Direct.

Very Bad brokerage and service is not available correctly.
Once you sell you have to wait 3 days again to buy.No such option is there to buy immediately from ICICI.

Brokerage of 0.05 per share for all all penny stocks below Rs 11 is very high compared to all other brokerage houses.

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.

have used for 2 years

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
