for the first timer I would suggest you hdfc securities, It is very clean and simple and will help to invest money in small chunks.

Dont Open Account with sharekhan ,why here i m telling you

I Opened my acoount just 2 weeks ago. I would not choose this my firm on my own. As other full service broker refto open my account with 3000/ inr and sharekhan agreed to open with 3000/ . As it was my first account i didnt know much about other charges. They told me the brokerage charge is .30% INR for delivery and .03% INR for intraday, i opened the account calculating that my intraday charge will be .06% INR. On that time i thout my capital would be between 3 to 10k. But i started my trading journey with 40k. Now my experience is whatever i earn with hard work trading whole day they suck my whole money. And whatever losses happened becaof their high charges for everything. Now i saw my intraday brokertage is about .11% INR and delivery brokerage is >>1% INR. If i traded 10 lakh intraday they suck my >> 1k . So i stop trading and decided to move with others.

I had opened account with share khan..
* Their brokerage is very high
* There are days where is used to give them 1600 as brokerage per day but they dont treat you properly.
* I must say they have got excellent trading terminal trade tiger best in business
* They provide good training in the form of ATC which was helpful for bigenners .. but experiance traders wont find it useful
* Their lot size for FNo is 60 if you bargain they may reduce it to 40max..
* They have got chat support which whould ask you to refer branch for everything..

I opened up a trading account with Sharekhan Limited one year back in 2014. My account was opened with sector-38, Chandigarh branch. Initially their representative Manohar mobile no.(98****) committed me that this account is opened up free of cost and there are not going to be any annual maintenance 250 rs after every 6 months). When i called up at their sector 38 branch they said yes you need to pay these charges. I talked to Manohar and he simply refused that he committed me about the lifetime free charges. Then i realized that it is a trap by the company representatives so that they can achieve their sales target. I feel cheated. Moreover, Manohar is rude to me. I don''t know how to get my problem solved as nobody wants to help me. I want to tell people that don''t deal with Sharekhan Limited as it is a fraud trading company. I am duped, cheated and harassed

I had an account with them for more than 8 I learned the lesson bitter way.
You call their Customer service and people do not respond well, they treat you like "They are doing some favor for you".

Now I have decided to move and got an excellent broker who has some customer issues.
I wish I had moved on earlier ...SHAREKHAN is really bad and pathetic...Bad service, high brokerage and full of attitude people

Online trading terminal "Trade tiger" is very good but sometime many servers are under maintenance & some servers are not open for general traders (i.e. for power traders only).
Technical tools provided withing trade tiger is very good. but charging the higher brokerage rates.
