In 2010 August Zerodha has started the concept of discount broker in India. Till then brokerage was calculated on the basis of total trading volumes and traders were ending up paying really high brokerage end of the day. Zerodha has come up with the discount brokerage model where the brokerage part remained fixed irrespective of the trading volume. After Zerodha few other companies also implemented this model. RKSV Securities was one of them. RKSV has now been renamed as Upstox. In this post, I will discuss Upstox Pro login, demo and also will post the review with it.
Upstox Pro terminal is available in both web and mobile versions. Here, in this content, you will get both explanations in details. Before step into the demonstration, let’s get to the most vital point that is how can you access them.
