  10. 10. What is BTST order in ICICIDirect?

    BTST in ICICIDirect is an abbreviation for Buy Today Sell Tomorrow. It is a facility that allows you to sell shares without having to wait for it to get credited in your demat account.

    It takes T+2 day (T being the day of trading) for the shares you bought to get credited in the demat account. In a normal trading process, you cannot sell shares that are not available in your demat account. Even if you sell shares (called shorting), you have to buy the shares on the same trading day.

    Now, what if you buy shares and due to an event the stock price increases in the short term. You won't be able to benefit from it as you have to wait for the shares to be delivered before selling it. The same situation arises if the stock prices move downwards.

    BTST order facility helps you to profit from such short term price movements by allowing you to sell shares before they are credited in your demat account. It also helps you prevent losses when the stock price is decreasing.

    Let us take an example. Suppose that you buy shares of a company today at 2 pm. The next day, the price of this scrip increases by Rs 10. With BTST, you can sell the shares and book profits.

    Note:

    • Only limited stocks are available for the BTST facility. You can check the list through the 'Stock List'.
    • No extra brokerage is charged on BTST orders. Normal cash brokerage is charged.
    • Shares under BTST orders can be sold on T+1 or T+2 days before the delivery of the shares on the demat account.

     

     

  11. 11. What are brokerage charges for BTST in ICICIDirect?

    ICICI Direct charge Equity Delivery (Cash & Carry) brokerage for BTST trades. So the brokerage charges for BTST are 0.55% in I-Secure Plan and 0.75% to 0.25% in I-Saver Plan. There are no special charges or additional fees for BTST trades in ICICI.

    Note that BTST brokerage is are not the same as intraday. BTST trades are considered as Cash & Carry trades for brokerage.

Useless broker, it cheats client. will be raising complaint to SEBI.
When you have created spread position , profit and loss are limited. And you have sufficient money the account for another spread, but suddendly they close one leg of the spread and book maximum loss and let other leg make loss. When you contact customer care to explain why they closed position, no reply.

Don't ever choose this broker, better to go for other, it is cheater.

Regretting, why I continued to pay highest brokerage in India for such a pathetic company and its services. From bottom to top, each and every ICICI Securities employee is un-responsive with a attitude "Take it or leave it". Not sure that even mass exodus of customers from this brokerage house will wake them up or not but still it is high time this company faces "Mass exodus of customers" as they truly deserve it.

Off late in last few years it has become worst service provider earlier it was not so .I have been associated with it for last 30 years but now there are numerous problems faced in trading with ICICI Direct . After purchase of equity ,it takes 6 days or more to credit your equities in your trading account . After sell ,it takes 6 days or more to credit your amount . Service charges are highest with worst service . Helpdesk is non functional

I am trading with ICICI Direct for last 30 years and of late it has become a worst service provider . I donot recommend any one to open the account at ICICI Direct . Helpdesk or on escalation there is no action . If you purchase equity it is credited to your Demat after 6 days or even more . Once you sell the equity ,it takes very long to credit your money . RM is nominated by ICICI Direct and even you change location ,RM is not changed despite long correspondence .
