I know this might be a bit long but I really would appreciate some help with this.

I'm very new to trading and I just recently started to trade on Zerodha. I won't bore you with the details but I traded for 2 days and on the first day I made 12 trades, thought I was +Rs 127 and this was the margin statement I received

I was in the red by Rs 8.13. So the next day I traded around 100+ times and my net total was +Rs 500ish, but the total this time showed it as Rs 356. The margin statement I received for that day was

This time I was in the red by Rs 1144. Can someone break this down for me? I used margins both times I traded as well. Is it the number of trades that were executed which caused the large hike in the fees?

The trades themselves if they're relevant are:
Day 1
Day 2

Thanks!

Dont you think,
there are expanses (brokerages and various taxes) chargeable on every trade.

I know there are charges for each trade, but I couldn't figure out the right way to calculate them. The taxable value of supply and STT especially, how exactly would I go about calculating it per trade? And did my use of margins influence the fee I had to pay as well?

Use Zerodha Console for breakdown of charges.
Ah, the small increases from 343 to 341.2 and such weren't enough to cover all of the fees now that I checked it out. Thanks for the reply.

Fee = order * .00055

it is just a rough estimate + stamp duty extra depending on the state of residence.

Example . If you buy 1 share of Rs. 100 each
fee = 100*.00055
=.055

To be precise Fee = order value x .005647

To sum up,6 paisa for a 100 rupee share on both buy/sell. (intraday only).

If your single trade is more than 2 lac , then fee will be less as for a single trade zerodha won't charge more than Rs.20.

Does this take into account all of the charges or just the brokerage charge?
