I would like to throw some light into the issues I face while I trade in HDFC SEC, The brokerage fees they charge is so great that there wont be much left in your profit margin. For penny stocks they charge .5 paisa per unit. For eg: if you bought 25000 shares of .40 paisa, they will charge you .05 paisa per unit which is the maximum fluctuation level of such stocks.. and the brokerage charges could come upto 1250 Rs. and you need to pay the rest of the brokerage from your hard earned money. its a company which is in for looting people. Actually they don''t posses the gentle man contract of charging minimal for their services and as we traders trade to make profit. not to feed some company. Further the amazing mobile APP they provide to do trading on the go. This APP wont show you your current status after selling. It will only get updated regarding the current days orders only after midnight. So if you bought some stock in the morning it might be reflected in your APP, but next sell order or purchase order remains in the air. not in this app.

Brokerage for Equity SIP is similiar for trading in equity shares on regular basis

However structure is update in HDFC Securities site so you may refer the same & brokerage charged by HDFC Sec is not the least but lesser than many in the market what i have expirenced.

Further, i have observed the settlement happened on timely basis as the process of T+2 (working days).

Poor website design, difficult to navigate, multiple glitches - reported several times without any correction, Merged two different types of screens creating a clutter. Getting reports of Txn erratic and cumbersome. Difficult to sell MF. Screen shows a box with Unit (and some value like 9.89 with no clue what it denotes even the phone rep of HDFCSEC did not know what it meant), another blank box has a Facilitator number- whatever that means, again with no clue on who is to provide this number. Customer care is slow to respond, does not do its homework and is clue less about various options of investment. Often obdurate and start speaking about company policy without listening to the investor.

I agreed, post launch of their new trading site there website was working slow, however after sometime that issue were resolved.

As you said that some value like 9.89 units under MF tab you are getting so you can send the screen shot of such error to their Email..... surely they will address your query.

They are trying to be good among worst within India, as compared to other international brokerages plateforms like TD Ameritrade. These Indian players are not looking at all at internationationally available trading tools and plateforms available at international level.

HDFC should really think of reviving this platform. If nothing else they can copy ICICI Direct.

HDFC Securities persons opening accounts with cheating, no charges for opening, no annual charges. once apply, they are deducting money from account without prior intimation. HDFC managers also cheating to apply for new account. You are classic member apply for classic card, after receiving classic card telling that min need to maintain 1 lakh otherwise 850 charges. 100/- quarterly charges mandatory.

I have a zero balance salary account, why i have to switch to that account. all HDFC agents and managers cheating

Im quite satisfied trading with HDFC securities, with their trading portal. It provides a seamless trading linked to my demat and savings a/c, without hassle.
Also gives me an option of trading thru Mobile, brokerage charge is comparitively similar with other leading firms

Also hv dedicated customercare desk which is available from 9am to 11pm & query get resolved via call, email or chat facility.

One simple idea that customers can follow is that one should have account in 2 stock broking companies. Open one Account with HDFC Securities and second one with any discount broker like Zerodha, RKSV etc. Follow the charts and all the technical calls from HDFC securities and trade with the discount broker. This will help the customers a lot of money on brokerage charges and taxes.

agree HDFC Sec, has a structure of 0.5% on delivery , competitive with all leading brokers, and gives a seamless trading, demat and bank a/c for transactions

Their Website features a lot information on markets, updates & portfolio maintenance, especially advanced portfolio tracker of my page feature is outstanding.

And also they have chat assistance facility for assistance which fitting well in investor needs.

Worst banking and investing experience. They impose undeclared abrupt mountainous charges.
They will eat your savings shamelessly by manipulative frequent charges. you can start a service by phone but have to make rounds in branch for closure.
Just google no of complaints against this scam bank.

hello everyone,
as an employee of Hdfc securities i see a lot of worried faces here , but the reality is not that hard. Hdfc is only charging an average brokerage, but there are other companies with better brokerages but the kind of tips, alerts and recomendations you get from hdfc is extraordinarily strong. if you go with other companies for minimizing transactions charges you would mostly end up with a net loss in trading.i strongly recomend all of you to go with hdfc which is providing a full service to satisfy all your investment needs.

274.1. Investor  Jan 6, 2016 2:56:13 PM IST
you are boasting about your recommendations ?? I was continuously making losses when i was following your recommendation, now i go with my own analysis i have started making profits.

Customer service is one of the worse i have ever seen. you guys simple stions are asked. you guys totally suck.

Opening account with HDFC was a mistake, will switch soon.

HDFC securites fraudulently deducted money from my SB account, as account opening charges. Gave a complaint and it took them almost 20 days to find the caand now its more than a month and they haven''t called me back with a resolution. A person by name deepa was very rude and when I asked to close my trading account she very gladly provided me an option to even close my SB account. What an idiotic service they have got.
