Ventura Securities started up with the aim to provide low-cost commissions, quality customer service, and offer investors a place to go to every day to share ideas, discuss the market and ultimately place trades. Good Place for NRI investors for end to end services.
Nevertheless to say, the broker is still struggling to achieve a respectful position in Indian Brokerage Space. While Ventura Securities does offer cheap trades, everything else about the client experience suffers (Towards trading tools and innovation), and in the end, clients are better off investing elsewhere.

"Pointer" platform of Ventura Securities is very user-friendly. The best part of Ventura is while placing an order (either Buy or Sell) one need not opt or select "Intraday" or "Delivery" position. Online "Buy" position will, by default, be converted into Delivery equities @ Delivery brokerage rate, if not sold in the same trading day. But, if sold with profit or loss then it will be considered as Intraday and brokerage will be @ Intraday brokerage rate. On the other hand, online short "Sell" position will be squared off by the system automatically and will be bought at the rate of the closing price if not taken any "Buy" position by the trader by the end of the same working day. This, in turn, gives traders great benefit. That is, the trader can take "Shortsell position" for his holding equities at a higher price and "Buy" the same at a lower price same working day to make profit @ Intraday brokerage rate and yet holding same equities at the end of working day. One can keep repeating it to make an intraday profit by taking short sell position at higher price repeatedly with his holding equities. If fails, then holding equities will be considered as sold equities at short sell price and make a profit with a brokerage of Delivery brokerage rate. This is a great benefit/advantage of Ventura. Which, nobody has ever pointed out anywhere. Surprisingly, Ventura never ever has explained it anywhere. Brokerage of Ventura is also genuinely low with initial one time deposit of Rs. 7500 which I have made in the year 2009 after leaving India Bulls. Since then, I am using Pointer and I found it's a very good platform from Ventura Securities for a small investor like me. That's the reason I never will choose any platform of any Broker so long as it asks to select "Intraday" or "Delivery" while taking a position, whether it''''s "Buy" or "Sell." By the way, I am not a marketing man of Ventura Securities. Thank you very much.
