Trade Smart Online Brokerage Charges - 2018

Keeping in mind less volume traders, high volume traders and active traders, TradeSmart Online (TSO) offer three unique Brokerage Plans:

1. Infinity Plan:This is a dream come true plan for big investors to trade in:

  • NSE Cash, BSE Cash and NSE F&O @ Rs 3999 per month.
  • Currency @ Rs 1999 per month.
  • Commodity @ Rs 3999 per month.
    • Special Features of this plan are:
    • Unlimited Monthly Trading on the chosen segment.
    • Get Intraday exposure of upto 20x on equity, 5x on F&O, 3x on Currency and 5x on commodity.
    • Best suited to active traders.
    • Get refund of money if you don't trade during any particular month.
    • No limit on number of trades and volume.

2. Power Plan:Under this plan, you can trade at flat brokerage of Rs 15 per order in equity delivery, Intraday, future, option, currency and commodity. TSO's Rs 15 flat-rate share trades is equal to UpStocks Rs 15 Plan, slightly expensive than SAS online's (Rs 9) and lower than its close competitors Zerodha (Rs 20) and RKSV (Rs 20) plans.

    Key Features of this plan are:
  • Get intraday exposure of upto 20x on Equities, 5x on F&O, 3x on Currency and 5x on Commodities.
  • Best suited to big volume traders with less frequency.
  • No minimum commitment, no monthly fee, no software uses fee and no hidden charges.

3. Value Plan:Ideal for less volume traders, this trade at .007 % plan, is a percentage based brokerage plan with charges : Delivery: 0.07%, Intraday Cash: 0.007%,Future: 0.007%, Option: Rs 7 per lot, Currency: 0.007% and Commodity: 0.007%. Get intraday exposure of upto 20x on Equities, 5x on F&O, 3x on Currency and 5x on Commodities.

This brokerage of .007% is very cost effective, super cheapest as compared to full service brokers,where they charge .5% for equity Delivery which is .07% with TSO.

Let's see it with a very simple example of Intraday trading:

Lets buy 2000 shares of ABC co @ 200. So brokerage will be with other full service Broker : (200*2000).05% = Rs 200 with Trade Smart Online : (200*2000).007% = Rs 28
