  • Fundamental Reports
  • HeatMaps
  • Screeners
  • Bubble Maps

One thing that is most important when it comes to research is - Accuracy. And this is the area where the technical tips of this stock broker falter pretty badly. The concern is not only with the performance but with the regularity and the timing of the tips. Either you get these tips too late in order to make a quick profit or you get them once in a while.

SBICAP Securities need to pull up its stocks when it comes to research.

  • Email – helpdesk@sbicapsec.com
  • Toll-Free Number –  1800-209-9345
  • NRI Calling - 022-6153-6900

SBICAP Securities should certainly look forward to increasing the number of communication channels such as web chat, and social media so that clients can have a better number of options to get service on the move.

However, as of now, the communication quality is fine and the issue will be more or less resolved in 24 hours.


SBICap Securities Closing Thoughts

SBICAP Securities is a big name in the share brokerage industry with decent trading tools and a dedicated customer service. But if you are a regular trader, then this stockbroker is definitely not the best choice for you, as you will end up paying huge brokerage in Intraday trading.

SBICAP Securites is relying primarily on its State Bank client base; however, it is not a business development strategy. A happy client is a referring client which implies larger business value.
