Hdfc sec does not allow to trade scripts less than Rs 2.50. when SEBI allows face value of the company can be Rs 1, 2, 5,10. It is against the interest of the customer who are trading in penny stocks. Updates by the bse or nse are not clearly notified to the customers. when compare to other brokers brokerage is high and fees are also high.

Stocks trading below Rs.2.5 or rather say below Rs.5 are penny stocks. These stocks bear a very high risk and volatility in market,due to the small size of the companies and their lack of transparency & relative newness, they are unpredictable, Some of these micro cap companies have no assets or operations and due to their low trade volumes, any size of trade can result in alarge % impact on the price of the stock..
As per the risk management policy of a company,the stock broker MAY reserves the right to refto provide the limit in Penny Stocks, hdfc securities does not trades in Z group securities and stocks trading below Rs 2.50.

hey jot....if u can help me to tell a leading broking/banking firm which has a lower brokerage than this?? other than local broker, i guess all are on the same competitive line. i personnaly feel though hdfc has a competitive brokerage but it gives me a seamless trading facility and hassle free trade and i know my trades & money is secured.

Had a terrible experience with HDFC wherein my account was not opened till 20 days after filing the form and later had to send at least 15 mails to get them to act on the same. Even after this I was told that their agent had not properly got the form signed from me and that they could not open the account unless I provide them with all the documents again.

Rated 'Very Poor' in all categories.

Hi, what about currency trading with HDFC? Anybody have experience about it? I am interested to do it. But need to know detail.

@ Provas- Hdfc securities facilitates currency trading , but not through their online trading portal.One can activate the currency trading priviledge in the trading account with them and place order over the phone with the dealer or to trade online one needs to log into NSE''s nowonline.com website, they will provide you with username & password .i suggest you write to their customercare help desk @ Email & may seek assistance for same.

Trading in HDFC Securities is a satisfactory experience for me. Website is comprehensive,giving maximum info and product details, easy to understand and portfolio is self explanatory.Cost price and current price, realised/ unrealised profit/ loss are available in portfolio. also they have a 24 hours (mon- sat) available customer support service for us.

Borkerage charges are very high. They are not folloiwng the charges specified in portal and dont know how the system will calculate.

Most of the times i didnt understand on what basis they are calculating brokerage. Same kind of volume and script they have charged diffrently.

FOr each sale transaction charging extra 25rs other than brokerages and which is not specified any where. I have enquired about this and did not get propoer response from HDFC and telling that this is for all the customers.

Brokerage for delivery segment with Hdfc securities is 0.50% or min Rs.25/- with ceiling of 2.5% on transaction value on both buy & sell on each trade. and for intraday segment it is 0.05% or min Rs.25/- with ceiling of 2.5% on transaction value on each trade
For Eg- If you purchase 100 shares on delivery @ Rs. 45 / share. Total transaction value = Rs.4500/-

Brokerage. 4500) which comes to Rs.22.5 is lesser than Rs.25 , so Min.Rs.25 will be charged on that trade, taking into consideration it is not exceeding the ceiling of 2.5%

refer to their brokerage structure- http://www.hdfcsec.com/FAQ.aspx?docid=201008101155287343750

There are dp transaction charges on selling the shares from the demat account which is levied by hdfc bank.

I am having dmat account with HDFC securities.
I am doing trading with phone for ordering the trade. The problems are that the staff at Madras branch are not attending the call. The reason I presume is due to over flooding of calls from the customers.
In share trading every second counts. Can you make arrangements to speedy attention of customers in order placing.

They say no annual charges but they charge annual folio maintaince charges between 750rs to 300rs making it one of the most expensive. If you compare it to say icici it may look the same but if you look at the features once you login hdfc is very basic you cannot really tract the profit loss or trades or any other thing.

NEVER OPEN ANY TYPE OF TRADING A/c WITH HDFC SECURITIES.IF YOU ARE OFFLINE TRADER THEN THE PEOPLE WORKING THEIR WILL GIVE TRADING TIPS WHICH WILL DEFINITELY REDUCE YOUR CAPITAL.

Due to some personal reason I am unable to maintain minimum balance in my savings bank account for which I am penalised Rs. 393x4 Rs.1572 by debitting from my account.
This forces me to look for some other banks to do trading.Govt banks like SBI allow us to maintain O balance.

I had gone through compare chart in which hdfcsec .com is showing Demat AMC charges as nil but practically they charge heavely. Also every sell carried out by client is charged @20 Rs for demat account which is not shown in table. Any Reply.

Hdfcsec.com says they charge .15% on intra-day but their bills state .71%. this is a clear case of misguiding customers. Any reply from there end.

I suggest that for dp charges you may contact at 022 61606161 with Extn - 5 or write an email to Email as its charged by HDFC Bank Depository section.

However, brokerage for intra day HDFC Securities Ltd., charge 0.05% or Rs. 25/- on each side also brokerage structure is updated in their website

brokerage is on the higher side .... rest all is good. reduce minimum brokerage to Rs 15 and 0.2% delivery and 0.02% intra day (for online trades) . options brokerage should also be reduced to Rs 50-75 per lot . if they can do it these guys will beat competition hands down . customer service is excellent.
