I am active trader in TSO ,Their service is excellent,but trading platform(NOW trader) is very very bad for intraday traders. when you are in profit or trade right way they purposefully misquoted total buy sell positions and simply hangs out the terminal, the dangerous thing is
if i put a trade ,some times it won''t and won''t display,even not to cancel my order,after some time they shows order is executed(at that time everything is against me in the market.
94.1. Trade Smart Online  May 29, 2015 1:51:32 PM IST

Hello Vik,
1) You cannot both NOW and NEST simultaneously.
2) In NOW software there are no payin charges. In NEST, there is a charge of Rs.8+Service tax for each payin.
3) We do not charge for trading software.

Please refer the link for fund transfer details from NEST.

2)You can link PNB bank account.

3)You can opt for any one software for trading irrespective of brokerage plan you select. Both softwares cannot be activated.

91.1. Trade Smart Online  May 13, 2015 11:04:54 AM IST
Hello Arshveer,
There are no specific conditions required to trade in FNO segment. You just need to have FNO segment active and you need to maintain specified margin for the stock in which you trade. Please refer the link for scrip wise margin required to trade in FNO.

For example i purchase 1 lot of nifty consist of 50 share at premium of 90rs and strike price of rs 8200 call and nifty is currently traded at 8300 what balance i need to maintain
91.3. Trade Smart Online  May 19, 2015 2:41:54 PM IST
Hello Arshveer,
Nifty 1 lot consists of 25 qty. In your example, to buy 1 lot of Nifty call option strike price 8200, at a premium of Rs.90, you need to pay Rs.2250(25*90).
91.4. arshveer  May 20, 2015 4:54:19 PM IST
What balance i need to maintain
91.5. Trade Smart Online  May 21, 2015 11:00:41 AM IST

Hello Shankar,
In your RIL example, brokerage will be Rs.15 only. You are also required to pay the govt. taxes as mentioned on our brokerage calculator. Please go through the link for your better understanding.

You can also refer the below link for govt taxes to be paid in each segment.

89.1. Trade Smart Online  May 11, 2015 12:15:40 PM IST
Hello Ram,
You can link SBI for payin and payout. If you are NOW user then you need to payin from NEFT. NEST user can make immediate payin from SBI. Transferring securities to VNS is free of charge. Share transfer from VNS to other DP is chargable of Rs.25/scrip.

Hi Ram,
Thank you for your interest in trade Smart Online.
1) Intraday exposures depend on the segment in which you trade. Please refer our knowledge base article for your better understanding.

2) As per your balance you will get automatic intraday exposure. You do not have to call us for the same.

3) You can generate all the reports from your back office login which are very transparent to the customer understandings.

One of the WORST service provider, you their backoffice you will end up loosing all your money.

Their back office is worst and is misleading infromation, not updated from past 10 days, every time i call them , they come up with new reasons.

I suggest people not to take service from this useless service provider, and also you will not get the payouts on time.

everytime you need to call and keep sending mails .

Hello Amit,
If you trade only in FNO then you do not have to open demat account. You can hold FNO positions till expiry. Demat account is necessary for NSE and BSE cash market tradings.
