Understanding different charges YOU pay while trading in the Stock Market
Stock Market Basics

Whenever we see our contract note, we find that several charges and taxes were deducted on each transaction that we performed. Many of us wonder, what are these charges and at what rate we are charged on different types of trades that we perform.
Let’s take up every single charge that is deducted from our account, and understand how to calculate them, so we know, the exact profit that we will earn from each trade we perform.


Brokerage is a fee that your broker charges you, for providing you its services, a platform and infrastructure to trade in the stock market. Different brokers charge different brokerage. At Moneypalm,in our endeavour to provide you more value for your money.


This is a Tax charged by the Government, for the transactions that you do in the Stock Market. Different types of transactions invite a rate of STT. We will discuss all of them below:

a. Stock Delivery : 0.1% on buying and 0.1% on selling

b. Stock Intraday: No STT on Buying. 0.025% only on selling

c. Stock/Index Futures: No STT on Buying. 0.01% only on selling

d. Stock/Index Options: No STT on Buying. 0.017% only on selling (Only on Premium)

e.
