Reviews on Kotak Securities

Pooja Mishra

21 August 2014

Kotak is a good broker, if you want to trade some stocks but are planning not to be active in market, they have good platform and convenient service. But when I started trading in Nifty Options the brokerage was very very high, I was paying 50 Rs per lot, and generally trade 5 lots of call/put, so brokerage excluding taxes use to cost Rs. 500 per trade, I thought it must be a standard everywhere, thanks to website..I see so many brokers who charge so much lesser!

Hi Pooja, If you have started trading in options would recommend you to look for a fixed brokerage rate, instead of paying per lot. There was plenty of discount brokers who offer minimal brokerage and good service. Do check out our broker directory..
