Re: Online Trading - Only Geojit is the best!

Thanks for the response. It is sad that though Geojit was the first internet trading platform in India, many aren't aware of it. Geojit isn't marketing aggressively for reasons best known to them. (read the last paragraph)

I hope to highlight the benefits of being with Geojit and share my experience as the days pass by.

A few clarifications:

1) I am not affiliated with Geojit in anyway other than being a normal user to trade in the capital market.
2) I wanted to be with the best offline and online broker currently available in India and my search led to Geojit (after 3 months of comparison with the competition).

The brokerage structure is different for phone trading and internet trading (cheaper)

Short Selling:
Short Selling is allowed only through visit/phone trading.

Minimum Amount:
Rs. 3000 for internet trading
No minimum amount set for visit/phone trading

3 in 1 Benefit

Once you register, you can either visit, phone or get on the net to trade. Any competition?

1. When I day trade (also short sell), I vist them.
2. When I have to buy or sell a few shares or do a small enquiry, I call them.
3. When I am seriously investing (not day trading), I log on to the net.

An insider (authenticity yet to be verified) told me that Geojit believes serious investors don't trade on the internet but sit right next to the NEAT and BOLT systems at their office. Is this the reason Geojit doesn't allow us to short sell? (protecting newbies?) Is this the reason they don't aggressively market their internet trading platform?

I'll let you know once I find it.

Re: Online Trading - Only Geojit is the best!

You may call me penny wise but I calculate my profits after deducting all overheads - brokerage, transaction charges, securities transaction tax, stamp duty, service tax, education cess, demat charges and taxes, tax on capital gains and also expenses incurred in using phone, internet or petrol for trading.

Convenience is the No. 1 factor.

Taking these into considerations, Geojit figures as the best! (If you are trading upto Rs. 5 Lakhs)
