Full Service and Discount Stock Brokers in India - by A Digital Blogger

Trading in stock markets requires you to be cautious, diligent as well as circumspect of both macro as well microeconomic factors that can impact the stock market. Stockbrokers definitely play a key role getting you on-board and then carry out the transactions and that is why selecting a stockbroker is a vital decision for trading.

Indian stock brokers are of 2 types - Full-Service Brokers and Discount Brokers. 

While full-service stock brokers provide all kinds of research reports, Intra-day tips, quarterly or yearly results and more, discount brokers propose much lower commission as they do not provide any kinds of recommendations or tips to their customers.

Their major goal is to a higher number of transactions as they charge a specific fee on each transaction irrespective of the monetary size of the transaction. Discount stock brokers charge you INR 8 to INR 20 per executed order and provide you with a trading infrastructure in return.
