Account Opening and Procedures

Sharekhan is one of the first brokers to offer online trading in India and is regulated by the SEBI. Sharekhan's mobile trading platform is user-friendly and well-equipped. The company offers some solid research to assist your trading decisions, while its customer support team gives quick and useful answers. It is a good choice for beginner investors. However, Sharekhan gives you access only to Indian markets. Also, its stock and forex fees, while not excessive, are not very competitive on this market and funding only available through bank transfer.
