To utilize the services of Trade Smart Online and gain access to its trading platforms, you need to open a trading account and a Demat account with the company. Though the company allows you to separately open a trading account and link it with your existing Demat account, you won't be able to sell the shares using the Trade Smart Online account. This is because the company currently doesn't offer services for delivery selling from stocks held with another DP. You need to transfer the securities to be able to sell it using TSO's trading account.

The Trade Smart Online Account Opening process is simple and can be done online.
