Edelweiss does not support GTC orders on equities; the information on is misleading. Moreover edelweiss does not support applying IPO online through it''s website; you''ll either need to visit their branch or apply through your bank through ASBA.

The trust with a stock broker is the most important thing as we deal with our hard earned cash with them. I have already lost a lot of my money with other brokers but I didn''t face any significant issue with Edelweiss Broking Ltd.
The customer support is great and that is what I liked the most. Apart from that they have much better products to offer than othera.

They collect commission in advance, but provide very very poor quality of service. They do not even give delivery slips which is a must under SEBI guidelines. Do not deal with the firm.

I am using edelweiss services for a year and half and quite satisfied with them. I took one of there prepaid plan with 1 year of validity and with that I paid pretty low brokerage in comparison to Religare which I used earlier. While I get there research report but do not base my trades on it. RM is good too.
