The first word that comes to my mind after looking at the stock market fluctuations post the Union Budget 2018 is – Yo-Yo! Yes, the ball attached to a string, bringing it back and forth; only that, market fluctuations are caused by many such strings. But these same fluctuations bring multiple opportunities to increase your returns on investment in the market. Given the tax structure on capital gains, and an announcement about the newly levied “godfathered” 10% tax on long-term capital gains; the higher the return, the better.
Trace stock levels – on the go!
The very first step towards investing in the market is to open a demat account. However, before doing that, a novice investor has to search for the correct broking firm. Fortunately, long gone are the days where one has to place a phone call to get in touch with a broker. A competent broking firm in today’s day and age not only provides you with an online platform to invest and trade but also gives you valuable insights via its own research. Apart from this, the trading platform must be integrated across your devices, enhancing the convenience of investing in order to combat the high volatility in the market. This must be coupled with maintenance of rock-solid trust, as entrusting your life’s savings could be nerve-wracking in the absence of such assurances of credence.
For me, all of this is made possible by Kotak Securities. First and foremost, the house of Kotak is a renowned and trusted business in the country. The website is easy to use and rightly boasts of convenience. It efficiently catalogs leading market research, feeding you with all the data that you’d require to make a well-informed decision. Whether you’re a beginner or an expert – it has something to offer for everybody. For instance, if you’re just venturing into what seems like the deep dark world of trading, it has the ‘Kotak Securities Academy’ to arm you with the A to Z of the trade. And for the more experienced players, it offers you daily, weekly, fortnightly, monthly and annual reports that cover every aspect of the market. Besides, there is an active support mechanism in case of any doubts and queries. And what’s more, there is a variety of gadgets that you can use to access the platform – yes, even your landline. In fact, Kotak has taken it a notch higher by becoming the first broking firm in the BFSI sector to launch “Chat to trade”- a feature which makes trading as easy as chatting. The facility allows you to begin trading by sending a WhatsApp or Telegram message on 7400 102 102 from your registered mobile number. But wait, that is not it! There is more.
Double or Nothing!
In addition to such amazing features, Kotak Securities also gives you a range of fun but safe options to make your trading even more exciting. Let me take you to a stroll down the memory lane and ask you if you remember betting double or nothing with your friends? Kotak Securities lets you do this once again, but while trading this time. So, during certain hours on certain kinds of transactions, you pay twice the brokerage if you make a profit, but absolutely no brokerage if you make a loss! That’s how strongly it relies on its own advice and cares for your well-being. Quite commendable, isn’t it?
The perks, however, don’t stop here. Kotak Securities bring in its own version of ‘happy hours’, where during certain hours on certain kinds of transactions. It gives you 50% off on brokerage! So, you just pay half the cost and enjoy 100% profits. In my view, this is exactly what sets it apart from other broking houses. There is a range of tools that help you save money, which in turn means that you make more money.
Trading on Kotak Securities is, therefore, a lot like playing Texas Hold’em Poker, the only difference being that every hand you have dealt with will work in your favour. They say that if the table is not set your way, just turn the table. Kotak Securities does exactly this for you! It does everything in its power to give you a seamless trading experience, while guiding you at all twists and turns, making you want to step out of your comfort zone and win big. So, what are you waiting for?
